- Appointed Mintmaster in Deutz, Germany, in May 1572 (even though he seemed to have been working in this position somewhat
earlier), but on 8 October 1578 Budels was arrested and charged for producing under-weight coins. He lost his position soon
after. In 1579 Budels was shown as working in collaboration with the Warden Jost. Reiner Budels was the son of the late Lütterich
Mintmaster who died during the Lower Rhine - Westaflen Circle Assay Commission of 1566 in Cologne. Lit.: Alfred Noss, Die
