End of coinage in Hall

On the 21st October, 1809 the Hall mint had to cease coinage, and in November, after the last battle had been lost on Bergisel, this mint rich in tradition was converted into a "royal Bavarian gold- and silver-redemption office". The minting machines were transported to Rosenheim. Attempts to reactivate the mint after the return to Austria in 1814 remained fruitless. It would take 166 years, until coins were struck again at Hasegg castle.
