Gelderland 1640 daalder Dav-4849
This specimen was lot 4918 in Goldberg sale 74 (Los Angeles, June 2013), where it sold for $517.50 including buyer's fees. The catalog description noted, "Netherlands - Gelderland. Lion Daalder, 1640. NGC graded MS-61." "Lion" daalders were struck in Gelderland and other Dutch provinces until 1697 but are seldom seen. Simultaneous with the Lion daalder (40 stuivers) was the "prince" daalder (50 stuivers), the silver ducat (48 stuivers), the three gulden (57 stuivers) and the ducaton (silver rider or 60 stuivers). The catalog does not explain why so many different large silver coins were felt to be necessary.
Recorded mintage: unknown.
Specification: 27.68 g, .750 fine silver.
