Incredibly Detailed Imagery
A standing knight with a shield is featured on the obverse, surrounded by the inscription "MO. ARG. PRO. CONFOE. BELG." (Moneta Argentea Provinciarum Confoederatum Belgicarum), which translates as "silver money of the Province of the Netherlands," with "TRA," the mintmark of Utrecht.
A stylized heraldic lion appears on the reverse, framed by a double beaded border inscribed "2017" and "CONFIDENS. DNO. NON. MOVETVR," which is the motto for the United Provinces, "Who trusts in the Lord is not moved."
