At Brussels were struck 10.820.000 coins in 1905 and 24.180.000 in 1906. 17.000.000 coins were struck at Hamburg, in 1906.
The small value coins struck in 1906 were minted in two mints. We chose to picture the coins featuring a J below the ribbon, because the other set has no distinctive signs. The J marked coins were struck in Hamburg and the ones with no markings in Brussels. Both sets were designed by A. Scharff. No Hamburg coins were struck in 1905.
The pictures of the coins above are present on Romanian coins through the kind permission of an anonymous donor.
