Philips de Schone, also known as Philip the Handsome or the Fair (1478-1506) was the first Habsburg King of Castile. The list of his regnal titles also included (among others) Count of Flanders and Holland, Duke of Burgundy and Brabant. He was the son of Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor, and Mary of Burgundy. In 1496 he married Infanta Joanna of Castile.

Of the total of 8 emissions under Philip only the last 2 were emissions of Philip's majority: 7th emission (1496-1499) and 8th emission (1499-1506).
The 1st emission was interrupted between August - November 1485 when his father Maximilian closed all mints and opened a new one in Mechelen. All coins struck here were called "Mechelaars'. The coins of the 3rd emission (1487-1488) refer to the crowning of Maximilian as Roman king. The 4th emission (1488-1489) was a war emission. During this period the city of Gent also struck coins in Philip's name (Revolt of Gent 1488-1492).

Philip introduced 2 new gold coins: the "St. Philippus goudgulden" with a value of 24 stuivers to replace the Andrew's guilders, and the "Gouden vlies" or "toison d’or" which had a value of 50 stuivers.
