Title: Zaujímavý nález mincí zo 17. storočia z Orešian

(An interesting find of 17th century coins from Orešany) – pdf


Abstract: In May 1986 was found in the village of Orešany, okr. Topoľčany, a depot of 127 coins dating from the years 1607-1650. The depot contained exclusively foreign coins and consisted mainly of 3-kreuzers from Bohemia, Moravia, Austria, Tyrol, Carinthia, Steiermark and Silesia. In all cases, the coins were minted after 1624, when a wave of inflation in Europe led to the production of better quality coins. The largest component, up to 37 coins, is made up of Polish coins in the studied hoard, representing 29.1% of all coins. This is due to the fact that these coins played an important role in the monetary relations in Hungary.
