Greetings from Kyiv!

My topic is world coins by names. I collect in such a way as to collect one coin of different names (denominations, as well as recognizable among numismatists types of coins).
My collection includes coins cent, penny, filler, yen.. etc. Also separately consider grosz, groschen, silbergroschen, neugroschen...

My question, in fact, concerns this coin:


It is sometimes called simply groschen, but some numismatic sources refer to it as Fürstengroschen.
Please tell, is it correct to call this coin Fürstengroschen (German "das Groschen von Fürstabt")? Is this a big mistake on my part?

Coin on my site ( for a long time.. But only now did I have doubts (I had a discussion with a russian numismatist before the war...).

I think your interpretation of the term "Fürstengroschen" is plausible. The abbey of Corvey was a very small land with about 10.000 inhabitants. The coins of the surrounding states were also used, and there were "Mariengroschen" to be differentiated. Best regards, KarlAntonMartini
