Why add this Silver 1648 Netherland 1 Lion Daalder coin to your collection?

The Netherlands Silver Lion Daalder was struck in multiple Dutch provincial Mints from 1575-1713. The Lion Daalder, struck from .750 fine silver, was circulated extensively in Europe, Africa, The Middle East and the New World. The coin is recognized as America's first dollar and is credited for the name "Dollar" not only in currency of the United States, but regions around the globe as well.

Imagery Inspired by the Netherlands Coat of Arms

An impressive lion rampant is depicted on the reverse, similar to one of the lions featured on the Coat of Arms of Netherlands. "CONFIDENS. DNO. NON. MOVETVR. 1648" is inscribed between two beaded circles, meaning "Confidence in the Lord is not moved."

A left facing Dutch knight is illustrated on the obverse, wearing the traditional helmet, armor and cloak. He stands behind the coin's second rampant lion image, which embellishes the face of the knight's shield. Inscriptions include "MO. ARG. IVI. IMP. BELG.," (New Silver Coins of the Belgian Confederation), and "CAMPEN," the Kampen Mint's mark.
