125 years Royal Dutch Numismatic Society

On 16th and 17th June 2017 the Royal Dutch Numismatic Society celebrated its 125-year anniversary in Utrecht. A two day conference was held with speakers on a variety of subjects.

The members of the society were presented with a medal in bronze and the book “Canon van ons geld”, an overview of 50 items connected to Dutch numismatic history.

The Coins of the Flanders Hoard 1914-1918

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.

the report can be found at here.
