During 1940–1992, systematic archaeological researches were carried out in the area of the Sázava Monastery resulting – among other things – with total of 164 single coin finds. The assemblage of this numismatic material represents a unique insight into the currency circulation from the 11th century to the early modern period. The beginning of the Hussite Era, associated with the expulsion of the monks from the Monastery, meant a fundamental change that has been reflected also in the considerable decrease of coin finds in the examined area (Tab. no. 1). Lost coins and coins found in grave contexts prevail in the collected numismatic evidence. A chronologically structured study of the coin finds is also part of this article. The analysis of the coins of the Luxembourg rulers, including important contribution to the classification of some small denomination types, is of a particular interest here. Special attention is also paid to the coins found in grave contexts – the published material presents the largest assemblage of such sources dated to the period from the 13th to 15th centuries, found in the territory of the Czech Republic (Tab. 2).
