The first minting of coins in Groningen took place in 1579. After many years of negotiations the city of Groningen and the Ommelanden reached an agreement on May 4 1672 to found a provincial mint. Coins were minted, with interruptions, under a formally appointed master of the mint until 1692. After this time minting for Groningen was only done on a incidental basis in Kampen and Harderwijk.
