The monetary situation during the reign of Michal Korybut Wisniowiecki called for deep reform. The Republic was inundated with coins issued on a large scale back in the reign of Jan Kazimierz - sub-value boratines and tymphes. However, the monetary reform was not carried out. The Sejm did not approve the trial zlotys (coins worth 1/3 of a thaler, weighing 9.52 grams and containing 7.14 grams of pure silver) presented in 1671 by treasurer Jan Andrzej Morsztyn. This is because it was broken. Sample two-dukats from the same year have also survived to our times. City mints in Gdansk, Torun and Elblag issued coinage shekels and gold coins during this period.
