the Netherlands in 1648

This specimen was lot 30767 in Stack's Bowers ANA auction (Chicago, August 2014), where it sold for $293.75. The catalog description[1] noted, "NETHERLANDS. Gelderland. Lion Daalder (48 Stuivers), 1648. NGC AU-55." "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.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Catalog reference: Dav-4850; KM-36; Delm-869.
