Description

Belgium and the Netherlands are the “Low Countries.” During the wars of the Reformation what is now Belgium stayed with the Catholic Holy Roman Empire, while the Protestant Netherlands broke away. After the Napoleonic wars Belgium was held by Netherlands for a few decades but the relationship was bad and Belgium broke away.

By “Modern World Coins” we mean here, generally, the round, flat, shiny metal objects that people have used for money and still do. “Modern,” though, varies by location. There was some other way they were doing their economies, and then they switched over to “modern coins,” then they went toward paper money, now we’re all going toward digital, a future in which kids look at a coin and say “What’s that?” We’ll say: “We used to use those to buy things.” Kids will ask “How?” The main catalog reference is the Standard Catalog of World Coins, to which the KM numbers refer.
