Why purchase this Silver 1648 Netherlands 1 Lion Dollar coin?

The Netherlands Silver Lion Dollar, struck from .750 fine silver in various Dutch provincial Mints from 1575-1713, was America's first dollar coin. The coin introduced to the New World by the Dutch settlers of the New York colony was heavily circulated throughout most of the colonies during the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.

Design Derived from the Netherlands Coat of Arms

A stylized lion rampant is depicted on the reverse, replicating one of the lions illustrated on the Coat of Arms of Netherlands. Located between two beaded circles is the inscription "CONFIDENS. DNO. NON. MOVETVR. 1648," which translates as "Confidence in the Lord is not moved."

The image of a helmeted and armored standing Dutch Knight is featured on the obverse. The rampant lion appears again, as ornamentation to the knight's shield. Inscribed "MO. ARG. IVI. IMP. BELG." (New Silver Coins of the Belgian Confederation).
