The coins of the 17th century are remarkable for what you don't see: religious strife. Yet, the reformation and contra-reformation are among the most important trends of the century. Instead, there are heads, arms and titles. Apparently, nobody wanted to stand out.

A trend of this century not represented here is colonialism. Around 1600, the VOC and the EIC were established. They would end up controlling an incredible part of the world. Predictably, the early coins are the hardest to find.
