Belagerungsmünzen#

Belagerungsmuenzen (Siege Coins), substitute coins used in besieged towns to make up for a lack of regular coins. In most cases they were made of low-quality metal alloys. The so-called Notklippen (Klippe was the Austrian name for angular coins) which were used during the 1529 Ottoman siege of Vienna were minted of gold and silver.
