In 1496 the Sejm approved the creation of a national currency. Its value was set at 30 Prague groschen, later converted to Polish grosz. The 30 grosz coin, złoty, became the Polish gulden.
Braunschweig's coins circulated in the territories of Braunschweig-Hannover from Lüneburg down to Hannoversch Minden.
