Within the Saxon community, Sibiu preserved and strengthened its leading position. The mayor of the town monopolized the office of the minting in 1449-1499.
In 1486 King Matias Corvin reinforced the privilages in the Andreanum and insitituted the Transylvanian Saxon University, autonomous juridical and legislative unity of the Transylvanian Saxons.
