Why order this 2018 Dutch 2oz. Silver Lion Dollar?

Based on the original Leeuwendaalder from 1597, this Netherlands 2018 Silver 2oz. Lion Dollar is perfect for collectors who like modern pieces with historic designs, as well as those who love low mintage pieces. The coin is part of a mintage of no more than 500 pieces. It was struck at the Dutch Mint from 2 oz. of .9999 fine silver. These unique pieces are the same diameter as the standard 1oz. coins, but are twice the thickness!

Powerful Lion Rampant Design

On the obverse is a standing knight that is based on the original 1597 Leeuwendaalder design. A shield that represents the province of Zeeland stands in front of his legs. Rim inscriptions translate to, "New Silver Coin of the Standard of Zeeland."

The reverse features a Lion in the waves design that is a tribute to Zeeland, a province in which rising tides cause problems. A lion rampant, a traditional symbol of the Netherlands, stands tall. The bottom half of the design consists of artistic waves. Along the rim is a Latin inscription that translates to "Lord, save us!"

Impeccable PF70 UC FDI

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin was part of the First Day of Issue, an exclusive designation that is only given to coins that go through a unique submission process. NGC also awarded the coin their highest grade, Proof 70 Ultra Cameo, which means that it is perfect as seen under 5x magnification and displays stunning contrast between the mirrored fields and frosted devices.
