Burgundian Cross with 4 crowns
Maria Theresia Kronenthaler in 1770
The kronenthaler was the currency of the Austrian Netherlands since 1755. It was subdivided into 216 liards or 54 sols. During the Brabant Revolution in the Austrian Netherlands in 1789–90, it was briefly replaced with a short-lived revolutionary currency.
Following the French occupation of the Austrian Netherlands in 1794, the Kronenthaler was replaced by the French franc.
