The new dataset and web application ‘Coin Production in the Low Countries: fourteenth century to the present’ provides scholars with user-friendly access to mintmasters’ accounts going back to the Middle Ages. They give insight into the production of legal tender (within the Low Countries and occasionally elsewhere as well), and provide access to such variables as regional production figures and coin denominations. This data article provides an introduction to the sources as well as the dataset, and suggests how the latter might contribute to new research into long-run economic and social history.
