This specimen was lot 5906 in Goldberg sale 72 (Los Angeles, February 2013), where it sold for $138. The catalog description noted, "Netherlands - Gelderland. Lion Daalder, 1641. Obverse: MO. ARG. PRO CON - FOE- BEL- GEL-Knight standing behind arms. Reverse: DNO. NON. MOVETVR. 1641. ConflDENS - Lion rampant left. About Extremely Fine." "Lion" daalders were struck in Gelderland and other Dutch provinces until 1697 but are seldom seen. Simultaneous with the Lion daalder (48 stuivers) was the "prince" daalder (40 stuivers), the silver ducat (also 48 stuivers), the three gulden (60 stuivers) and the ducaton (silver rider). The catalog does not explain why so many different large silver coins were felt to be necessary.
