No. 81; Groningen, Waagplein 1, "Goudkantoor", built in 1635. Originally this building served as a tax office in the province of Groningen. It was called the Collectehuis at the time. The saying on the building, Date Caesari quae sunt Caesaris (Latin) (English: Give unto Caesar that which is Caesar's) refers to the original function of the building. In 1795 the Collectehuis closed. In 1814, an assay office for gold items was housed in this building. Officially it was called ‘Goud- en Zilversmitkeurhuis' or ‘Waarborgkantoor’, but because these names were too long it was colloquially called the ‘Goudkantoor’. The ‘Goudkantoor’ would assay items for real gold.
The houses will be packaged individually and with care, and shipped with Trace & Trace.
