Kampen G98-3128r.jpg

This specimen was lot 3128 in Goldberg sale 98 (Los Angeles, June 2017), where it sold for $247. The catalog description[1] noted, "Netherlands: Kampen. Rijksdaaler, 1655. Crowned lion. Reverse: Ferdinand III, bust right holding sword. Scarce type. NGC graded AU-55." This "prince's dollar" is noted for 1655 and 1657 only and is triple the price of a lion dollar (Dav-4879) from Kampen. 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.

Specification: 29.03 g, .885 fine silver.

Catalog reference: Delm-709, KM 52; Dav-4985.
