Peace of Nijmegen Jeton 1677.

Recommended Posts



The Peace Treaties of Nijmegen were a series of treaties signed in the Dutch city of Nijmegen between August 1678 and December 1679. The treaties ended various interconnected wars among France, the Dutch Republic, Spain, Brandenburg, Sweden, Denmark, the Prince-Bishopric of Münster, and the Holy Roman Empire.


The most significant of the treaties was the first, which established peace between France and the Dutch Republic and ended the Franco-Dutch War of 1672-1678. Peace negotiations had begun as early as 1676, but nothing was agreed to and signed before 1678, this jeton was apparently struck 1677 so I think it must commemorate the actual cessation of hostilities, hence the latin QVIESCAM ET QVIESCERE FACIAM = To rest/cease and by resting/ceasing the making of it(peace).
