Research on medieval coins in The Netherlands


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is my personal Academia site with my articles, mostly about medieval coinage: https://independent.academia.edu/AntonCruysheer.

For anyone who's doing research about coins in/from The Netherlands I wrote this English article with many tips:

'Because many coin researchers of Dutch finds origins from outside The Netherlands, I thought it would be helpful to point out the locations as to where to find these coins. The places you can find coins I divided in six categories: coin and archeological repositories, museum collections and platforms, social media platforms, determination fora, and personal websites, auction houses and (private) collections, numismatic and archeological publications. - Enjoy your research!'

Many, Many thanks for posting this, Anton.  I very emphatically do not read Dutch, but bookmarked your main page.

I collect mainly on the peripheries; Brabant and Salian-era Frisia.  But it will be great to expand my horizons!

...Fortuitously enough, this also reminded me that I had finally rejoined academia.edu, after accidentally losing my account (while trying to stop getting irrelevant email notifications) a couple of years ago.  There are people there who will be very fun to renew correspondence with.  Maybe you'll end up being one of them!

Bonatiele has a great website that I have used for early Frisian coinage: http://www.bonatiele.nl/FDETUK/medievalcoins.html

He's got coinage labelled by century, and I find it interesting to look at the stylistic similarities and differences of the coins during this period. The major centres of Cologne, and elsewhere were often imitated by other regions. This site has been around for a while, and has several examples of most of the main coins from Dannenberg.

Many thanks for the nice replies!

Let me know if you have any questions whatsoever (determination, etc.). My main knowledge and period of interest is the 12th and 13th century in where population grows, cities and markets emerge and coins are made available to most people.

This Facebook group is nice to see what medieval coins are found in The Netherlands by metal detectorists: https://www.facebook.com/groups/853231181422839.
