Coin Production in the Low Countries, 14th century to the present

The new dataset and web application ‘Coin Production in the Low Countries: fourteenth century to the present’ provides scholars with a user-friendly approach to mintmasters’ accounts going back to the Middle Ages, and allows them access to such variables as regional production figures and coin denominations.

The project has been made possible thanks to a generous grant from KDP, the Small Data Project Section of DANS (Data Archiving and Networking Services).
