The kronenthaler was the currency of the Austrian Netherlands since 1755. It was subdivided into 216 liards or 54 sols.[1] 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.
