The Ottoman Era was a period of permanent changes. However many wars afflicted the Hungarian Kingdom, its economic system could still develop, even if it took more time than expected. The Hungarian monetary system faced a huge problem, which was the lack of smaller denominations. The Habsburg rulers tried to integrate and standardize different economic and monetary systems found within their empire into a single system. On the one hand, the establishment became more and more professional. On the other, the Hungarian everyday transactions required a larger volume of circulating smaller denominations than were available. In my paper, I will discuss the appearance, circulation and disappearance of Polish silver coins from the Hungarian coin circulation pool in Ottoman Hungary.
