English: Geuzen medals or Beggar’s medals (also Sea Beggars medals) were coined during the early days of the Dutch Revolt and the first half of the Eighty Years' War in the 16th century. During that period, a lot of medals, tokens and jetons with a political message were issued. This article deals with the earliest Geuzen medals or tokens, i.e. from the mid-century to 1577.
Nederlands: Tijdens de Tachtigjarige Oorlog ontstonden er een groot aantal verschillende geuzen- en aanverwante penningen, zoals spot- en (reken)penningen met meestal een politieke achtergrond.
