Since the break of the 8th and 9th centuries, the people in Bohemia were in intensive contacts with the Western Christian world represented by the powerful Frankish Empire. This is well documented by activities of the Bavarian missionaries in Bohemia and objects of the Western provenance found there (e.g. weapons, various decorations, etc.). Also the number of the Carolingian deniers registered in Bohemia significantly increased recently. Territorial expansion, engagement of the Přemyslid Bohemia in the profitable long-distance trade in the 10th century and the close Přemyslid contacts with the Bavarian milieu led to the production of the Bohemian coins at the beginning of the 960s – the deniers copying the BavarianSwabian prototypes. Introduction of these coins into the local exchange was not that simple. The coins struck in the 9th and 10th centuries were predominantly used by traders in long-distance trade and by ruling elites. Their larger and massive distribution can be taken into consideration since the beginning of the 11th century.
