Schulman sale 347, lot 399

This specimen was lot 399 in Schulman sale 347 (Amsterdam, April 2015) where it sold for €1,800 (about US$2,317 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted, "½ grote oude gouden rijder. 1610. type I. Ruiter naar rechts boven provinciewapentje burcht •MO• AVR• PRO• CON – FOE• BELG• ZEL•. Kz. generaliteitswapen, jaartal boven de kroon. RR. Zeer fraai +. uit veiling Schulman 13 van 14 nov. 1994, no. 298." The catalog calls this coin a "half gold rider," a term American numismatists reserve for the similar coin of the eighteenth century valued at seven gulden. Of course, demi-cavalier d'or, a French term, means the same thing. This rare type is listed for Zeeland for 1609-48.

Recorded mintage: unknown but rare.

Specification: 5 g, .920 fine gold, this specimen 4.97 g.

Catalog reference: Delm. 888; V. 79.2; Fr-312 (124); KM 19.
