the Netherlands in 1648

This specimen was lot 72832 in Stack's Bowers Collectors Choice Online Auction (Santa Ana, CA, May 2017), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted, "NETHERLANDS. Utrecht. Lion Daalder, 1649/8. NGC AU-58. Full legends on both sides, nice luster." "Lion" daalders were struck in Utrecht 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-4863; KM 32.1.
