Abstract:

Op 31 mei 1997 ontdekt de heer W. Van Driessche uit Zingem een unieke goudschat bij het renovatiewerken aan zijn pas aangekochte woning. Bij het verwijderen van een oude bevloering uit Doornikse kalksteen haakt hij op nauwelijks twintig centimeter diepte met de punt van zijn houweel in het oor van een steengoedkruikje. Het recipiënt komt gaaf aan de oppervlakte en bevat 76 goudstukken en 8 grote zilverstukken, grotendeels uit de Spaanse tijd.

Een depotvondst met 18de-eeuwse munten uit Zoersel (prov. Antwerpen) / Luk Beeckmans & Jasmine Cryns

Abstract:

In 2003, levelling work at an old farmstead along the Sniederspad in Zoersel revealed a large coin scatter. Near the hoard, foundation walls were encountered, believed to predate 1777; the owner of this building was probably a tenant farmer renting land from the Bosschaert family, who at the time owned large tracts of land in the region. The hoard consists of 82 silver coins from the Southern Netherlands, France and Austria, and a number of silver pieces from the United Netherlands. The youngest date in the hoard is 1793, coinciding roughly with the renewed French occupation of the area. The fact that the hoard had been cached may well be a reference to these troubled times, and silver coins appear to have been the main selection criterion in its composition. Similar late 18th-century hoards have been found further afield, indicating a clear regional coin concentration.

Abstract:

In 1991, during the renovation of his farmhouse in Retie, Karel Nietvelt made an unexpected discovery. Underneath the brick floor of a pig pen he found a pottery beaker containing a hoard of silver coins. A numismatic study of the coins has shown that the hoard consists of twenty-three French écus dating to the late 18th century. The farmhouse where the beaker was discovered, dates to 1945. It was built on top of the foundations of an older farmhouse. Given the age of the coins and the pottery beaker, and the fact that the hoard was found in the soil underneath the floor foundation, it seems unlikely that the coins were hidden during the construction of the new building. It is assumed that they were buried by an inhabitant of one of the farmhouse’s predecessors. Possibly this happened in the late 18th century, a period of great unrest.

Zilveren munten uit de 18de eeuw gevonden op het dorpsplein in Moorsel (Aalst, prov. Oost-Vl.) / Luk Beeckmans & Frans De Buyser

Source:

Relicta 9 (2012) p. 209-218

Abstract:

In June 2011, during road works in the centre of the village of Moorsel, a late 18th-century coin deposit was discovered (figs 1-2). It contains the standard collection of 18th-century coins that make regular appearances in deposits elsewhere in the region dating from the same period. The coins were minted in the southern Netherlands (fig. 5), Austria (fig. 6) and France (fig. 7). The most recent coin dates from 1793. The coins were found on the site of a private dwelling (figs 3-4) which had to be demolished due to road widening in the early 20th century. Considering the location and the depth at which the coins were found, it is thought they must have been hidden in the cellar of the demolished building. The 29 coins presumably represent the savings of a modestly well-off person or family. The fact that the coins were hidden may be linked to the unstable political sitution that was prevalent at the time, or perhaps with the introduction of assignats. Many people did not trust this new paper money and large amounts of silver were stashed away.

Abstract:

The Brussels Coin Cabinet has recently acquired a part of a hoard made of French royal coins which was discovered at Châtelet (in the vicinity of Charleroi, Belgium). Out of 402 coins examined, 393 are ecus of Louis XV and Louis XVI (1726-1791). In addition to the 4 unpublished varieties, this study sheds a new light on all this production of heavy silver coins. The content of the Châtelet hoard is put side by side with evidence of many other hoards of this kind which have been discovered on the Belgium territory, as well as with works dealing with the volume of these issues. Other comments may be found on the metrology, seldom considered so far, which enables us to follow the development of weight-loss. The investigation of this hoard is supplemented by the study of cuttings, most often designed to mutilate the royal effigy, of  races of adjustment and of other peculiarities.

Een depotvondst met onbekende XIIde en XIIIde eeuwse munten te Halle (Vlaams-Brabant) / Aimé Haeck ; m.m.v. Luk Beeckmans en Frans De Buyser

Source:

Revue Belge de Numismatique 150 (2004) p. 135-156

Abstract:

Although the find of Halle contains only ten coins, ail halfgroats, its composition is astonishing. Not less than five of the coins are of an unknown type. Thus the find contains a four-lion halfgroat of John II of Brabant with reverse inscription +MON[ET] A DALEM, strucked at Dalhem, similar to the same coin (de W. 293) struck at Maastricht. The rnint of Dalhem, known for having struck sterlings, was consequently still in function during the reign of John II. A second unknown type is a halfgroat with eagle with the inscriptions + MO[NETA]. [ ] COMITI[S] and WILLEM: MILES, which we think has been struck by William of Avesnes during the period when he was co-regent in Holland and before he became count William II of Holland and Zeeland (summer 1303-sept. 1304). Further the find contains two 'baudekins à cheval' of Robert of Béthune, count of Flanders, struck at Alost (G. 172-173), but the rider, with sword and shield, is galloping to the right. According to the very poor weight and in comparison with the Hainault 'baudekins' the author wenders whether it could not be contemporary forgeries. The last unknown type is again a 'baudekin' but with the rider, with sword and shield, galloping to the left. This type is without any precedent, even not in Hainault. The inscriptions read +GODEF//RD COMES//DEVIAN and MON[ ]ROTENSIS what brings us to the possibility that the coin was struck at the little village Roth near Vianden by Godfrey II, count of Vianden of whom up till new, no mintage was known. It also can he a forgery of one of those numerous minor lords within the Luxemburg region. The other coins of the find are halfgroats of Brabant (de W. 290-291), Hainaul (Ch.H. 29), Looz (Baerten 38), Liége (de Ch. 213) and Luxemburg (Weiller 27), in each case one specimen. Possibly four coins show a less or more strong shadow of suspicion, whîch reflects a dubiety on the whole find. The date of concealment should be between the beginning of 1303 and the end of 1305.
