The 14th century gold coins of the Low Countries vie with those of France to the claim of ‘the high point of Gothic art’ in numismatics. The earliest issues were imitations of French royal gold types – however, several entirely original types followed, the Heaume d’or of Louis (Lodewijk) II being both the largest and most elaborate.
