Kampen 1686 daalder Dav-4879
This specimen was lot 4925 in Goldberg sale 74 (Los Angeles, June 2013), where it sold for $196 including buyer's fees. The catalog description noted, "Netherlands - Kampen. Lion Daalder, 1686. ICG graded EF-45." "Lion" daalders were struck in Kampen 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.
Specification: 27.68 g, .750 fine silver.
Catalog reference: Dav-4879, Delm-862, KM 35.4.
