Why buy this Restrike 2017 NetherlandsSilver 1 New York Lion Dollar?
This New York 2017 Netherlands Silver Restrike 1 Lion Dollar celebrates the coin from which the modern dollar gets its name. Known as the "daalder," the original coin was widely circulated throughout the Netherlands and its colonies due in no small part to the prevalence of the Dutch East India Company. Among those colonies was New Amsterdam, which has since become New York. Struck at the Dutch Royal Mint from .9999 fine silver, this coin reproduces the original designs, making it a great option for collectors who are students of history.
Stunning Lion Rampant Design
The obverse of the coin features a knight standing in full armor. His legs are blocked by a shield that features a lion rampant, which features on the coats of arms of the Netherlands and Belgium. On the reverse, a lion rampant stands alone. Both faces of the coin have rim inscriptions that encircle the designs.
Impeccable MS70 with Lion Dollar Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin their highest grade, Mint State 70, which is given only to coins that lack even a single imperfection that is visible under 5x magnification. They provided this grade on a label that bears one of its key design elements, a rampant lion.
