Freie Vereinigung Zürcher Numismatiker, Schweizerisches Landesmuseum Zürich, 26 October 2010, 18.15 h: “Die Reichsmünzstätte Basel im 15. Jahrhundert”.
The aim of the second part of the study is to examine the coinage of those mints in the German lands, which were left at the emperors’ disposal by the 15th century. Therefore, the coins of the mints of Dortmund, Frankfurt (Main), Nördlingen, Nuremberg and Basle which are preserved in the major collections are catalogued on the basis of die-studies. Apart from cataloguing the coins, a fresh look at the written sources is going to provide information as well on the organisation of the mints and the mintmasters as on Konrad of Weinsberg, the lessee of those mints, and his comprehension of the money supply and monetary theory in general.
Frankfurt am Main
All coins illustrated stem from the Coin Cabinet of the Historical Museum in Frankfurt am Main.
