Seventeenth-century coins are hard to find on the market. However, restrikes, or recreations, of these coins are becoming more popular. Today, you can purchase the 2017 Proof Netherlands Lion Dollar 1 oz Silver Coin from Provident Metals in PF70 UCAM condition.
This release honors the 400th anniversary of these coins, which were originally created in 16717 and called the Dutch lion daalder. The restrike versions are called Lion Dollars because of the stunning lion designs found on the coins.
The obverse image is that of a knight standing near his shield, which bears the image of a rampant lion. Engravings on this face of the coin include MO. ARG. PRO. CONFOE. BELG, short for Moneta Argentea Provinciarum Confoederatum Belgicarum. This phrase means Silver money of the Province of the Netherlands. The letters TRA represent Utrecht. There is also a beadwork design around the face of the coin.
The reverse bears the image of the heraldic lion, which is the same image as featured on the shield on the obverse of the coin. Beadwork surrounds the lion and the rest of the design. Engravings include 2017 and the motto of the United Provinces CONFIDENS. DNO. NON. MOVETVR. It means Who trusts in the Lord is not moved.
The Royal Dutch Mint opened its doors in 1567 under the control of the Dutch state. The mint has been producing coins for the Netherlands for more than 400 years. In 2016, the mint was purchased by the Heylen Group. Today, the mint strikes coins for numerous foreign national banks in the Eurozone and countries like Latvia, Honduras, and Guatemala.
Each coin in this listing will ship in a plastic slab straight from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). This slab will give important information about the coin and protect it from any damage. These coins were given a PF70 grade and will be in perfect condition. They have also been given a UCAM grade, which stands for Ultra Cameo. UCAM coins have heavily frosted devices and deeply-mirrored backgrounds for a high level of contrast.
