This specimen was lot 1354 in Stephen Album sale 32 (Santa Rosa, CA, September 2018), where it did not sell. The catalog description noted, "GELDERLAND: Dutch Republic, AR rijksdaalder, 1649, Fine to VF." 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).
