Extra The activities of the Blaauwhoedenveem, took place in and around the weigh house in Amsterdam. The oldest weigh house was built in the fourteenth century, but the one pictured in this medal opened its doors in 1565. This graceful Renaissance building, which was built from blue-gray limestone, was situated on Dam Square, in the heart of the city. The weigh house had a double staircase at the front leading to the upper floor, with permanent canopies lining the other three sides. These permitted access to seven scales that were suspended from sturdy beams. Inside was a smaller scale, where the most valuable products were weighed. Carriers, who were often united in storehouses such as the Blaauwhoedenveem, transported goods to and from the weigh house. Based on the weight and quality of the goods, the weighmaster decided how much weighage was owed. The building remained in use for over two centuries. Source: Royal Vopak
