As an ongoing process for our research on the medieval lion groats form the Low Countries (Netherlands, Belgium and Luxemburg) and France, we looked at another old coin hoard, found during WWI in Flanders and reported in 1956 in the Royal Numismatic Society’s Numismatic
Chronicle by R.H.M. Dolley – “A Small Find of Fourteenth Century Groats From Flanders”.
By kind permission of the Royal Numismatic Society we could use the pictures of Dolley’s article for our research.
By this time we have to develop our theory of dating some of the Flemish emissions of the leeuwengroten. Which has some consequences for dating the hoard.
On 24th of May I’m travelling to the Royal Librabry in Brussels for the 1st International Numismatic Conference of the Royal Numismatic Society of Belgium, organized in collaboration with the Coin Cabinet of the Royal Library of Belgium.
The topic is “Coin Use and Coin Circulation in the Low Countries during the Middle Ages (7th – 15th centuries”
It is an interesting programme varying from circulation of sceattas in the early Middle Ages to the coinage of Late Medieval Period in the Low Countries.
Some well known numismatists are speaking that day.
Looking forward to learn more on medieval numismatics and meet fellow numismatists.
