The old mining settlement in the neighborhood of copper­ mines was promoted to a Free Mining Town on July 2nd, 1528, by Ferdinand I. to the stature of a Free Mining Town.

The municipal coat-of-arms, granted at the same time, shows the figure of St. Catherine, clad in a green robe. She bears in her left hand a sword, in her right hand a branch. The wheel in the base and crest are also symbols for St. Catherine.

On both sides of the Saint are two little shields. The right­ hand one is decorated with silver mining hammers. The left one bears a mill-stone. The mill-stone was the common charge of the coat­ of-arms of the Lords of Veitmile, who were the ow­ners of the town at the time when the town rights were granted.
