This specimen was lot 814 in Jean Elsen sale 140 (Brussels, March 2019), where it sold for €5,000 (about US$6,660 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"NEDERLAND, Bataafse Republiek (1799-1806), AR zilveren dukaat, 1806, Holland. Muntteken: roosje. Uiterst zeldzaam Prachtexemplaar met mooie patina. Fleur de Coin. (Netherlands, Batavian Republic, 1799-1806, silver ducat of 1806, Holland province. Very rare cabinet piece with handsome toning, Uncirculated.)"
In 1795 the revolutionary armies of France invaded and occupied the United Provinces and reorganized it into the puppet Batavian Republic, which survived until 1806, when Napoleon installed his brother Louis on the newly created throne of the Kingdom of Holland, which lasted only until 1810. After Napoleon's fall in 1814, William I, of the old house of Orange, was made king, but by that time all the Dutch mints were closed except for Utrecht. This type is also listed for 1801-02.

Recorded mintage: unknown but rare.
