Pfalz is the German word for Paltinate. It was founded in 1505 after a succession war. Pfalz is in southwestern Germany. Neuberg is a town now in Bavaria, on the Donau river, owned by the Palatinate dukes until the duchy was dissolved by Napoleon in 1808.

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.
