Utrecht 1762 silver ducat rev H3029-30219.jpg

This specimen was lot 30219 in Heritage sale 3029 (New York, January 2014), where it sold for $5,581.25. The catalog description[1] noted, "Utrecht. Provincial silver Ducat (48 Stuiver) 1762, MS64 NGC. A prolific type, but the present specimen is certainly among the finest survivors from it, as limited evidence of surface contact is noticed and the design has been executed to impressive fullness. Most pleasing however might be the patina, as a mixture of vivid rainbow colors swirls around the surfaces and adds to the semi-prooflike luster already exhibited within the fields. For one who collects by type, this is a lot that certainly can't be overlooked." This type was struck throughout the eighteenth century until 1794. The Utrecht mint is still in operation, striking euros.

Recorded mintage: 1,111,000 for 1761-62.

Specification: 28.25 g, .873 fine silver, .793 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 93.1, Dav-1845.
