Rescript addressed to all Chambers in Berlin issued by King Fredrick II [Prussia]: “All foreign coins are to be stopped when they enter the country and/or are in transit, and the export of any gold or silver coins or coins of other metals and materials are entirely prohibited. Forgers are to be punished with having their counterfeited [items] confiscated. If that person is a Protected Jews, he shall have his letter of protection revoked. And so it is decided.”
