Klippe coins were generally made while a city was under siege for everyday commerce. They are generally square or diamond shaped and were usually made only for that purpose. However, some klippes were made as a regular issue, such as the many issues of the city of Salzburg in Austria, where klippe coin were made in silver and gold for many centuries.
