Sedwick Treasure Auction 28, lot 151

This specimen was lot 151 in Sedwick Treasure Auction 28 (Winter Park, FL, November 2020), where it sold for $840. The catalog description[1] noted, "Holland, United Netherlands, "lion" daalder, 1616, ex-Jones. Choice and lustrous example (AU details) with no corrosion, clear design elements, just a few scratches from salvage here and there. Pedigreed to the Dr. Peter Jones collection and to our Auction 12, with original lot-tag #435 and Sedwick photo-certificate. Recovered from: Campen, sunk in 1627 off Isle of Wight, south of England." "Lion" daalders were struck in Holland and other Dutch provinces until 1697 but are seldom seen, especially well struck like this example. 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. An 1616/3 overdate is reported.

Recorded mintage: unknown but a common date.

Specification: 27.68 g, 0.750 fine silver, this specimen 26.73 grams.

Catalog reference: KM-17, Dav-4858.
