These religious Hebrew amulets can be found on 17th, 18th and 19th century West-European coins, mainly from Germany and the Netherlands. They can be chiselled out of different coin types (ship shilling, pfennig, cent,...) and occasionally also French coins.

Hey (or Hej), being five in gematria, is often found on amulets, symbolizing the five fingers of a hand, a very common talismanic symbol. It is often used to represent the name of God as a way of saying God without actually saying the name of God.
