“Coin-Edict” issued by George I (‘Georg Ludewig’) [Present-day Germany; Electorate of Brunswick-Lüneburg]: “We, Georg Ludewig, Duke of Brunswick and Lüneburg by the grace of God, […announce to everyone …] that we have noticed with great disapproval that Our seriously issued ordinances are not obeyed in the least, but rather […] that protected Jews or even the Jews who enter (foreign Jews) act against Our edicts and continue to further bring forbidden and smaller (less valuable) kinds [of coins] into the land, which they keep and trade and exchange with, […these Jews] shall not only have their [coins] confiscated, but also be fined proportionate to the confiscated sum […].”
