In 2017, the Royal Dutch Mint revived one of the most significant Dutch coin designs. The Lion Dollar was widely struck starting in 1617 and went on to become a form of global currency used by merchants throughout Europe and the Middle East, the Dutch East Indies, and eventually British North America. Today, you have the opportunity to buy 2019 Proof Netherlands Lion Dollar 1 oz Silver Coins online at Provident Metals.
2017 marked the 400th anniversary of the release of the lion dollar by a central Dutch mint. The first strike of the design actually came from the province of Holland in 1575 as it fought for its independence. By the 17th century though, six of the seven provinces of the Netherlands were issuing the lion dollar. It was also issued by German and Italian cities. Merchants would use the Dutch lion dollar in the Middle East, in the Dutch East Indies, and eventually in British North America. In fact, the colonies of Maryland, Massachusetts, and New York regularly saw the lion dollar in circulation on a daily basis.
A rampant lion is featured in the obverse design of the 2019 Proof Netherlands Lion Dollar 1 oz Silver Coin. The lion is depicted just as it was found on coins as far back as 1617. The historic inscriptions in Dutch that surround the lion represent the motto of the United Provinces and read, in English, Who trusts in the Lord is not moved.
There is a Dutch knight with a lion shield on the reverse face of 2019 Proof Netherlands Lion Dollar Silver Coins. The knight stands in front of the shield with a rampant lion found on the shield.
The modern Royal Dutch Mint traces its roots to the founding of the Utrecht Mint in 1567. The modern mint is located in Houten, the Netherlands. The mint issues these coins today with a Certificate of Authenticity bearing the name and signature of Stephan Satijn, the mint master of the Royal Dutch Mint.
Your 2019 Proof Netherlands Lion Dollar 1 oz Silver Coin comes inside of a presentation box with a capsule protecting the coin. Included within the box is a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint.
