Why purchase this 1 oz Silver 2019 Netherlands Lion Dollar Restrike Proof?
The 1651 Dutch Daalder was struck at a time when the country owned a substantial part of what are today the eastern United States. So important was the coin in the Americas that it is today known as America's first silver dollar. In fact, the coin circulated around the world. Now, the Royal Dutch Mint celebrates the coin with this restrike. Complete with design elements from the original issue, this piece was struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine silver. It comes in its original packaging from the mint and will arrive in GEM Proof condition.
Historic Lion Rampant Design
On the obverse is the famous Dutch Lion rampant. The image has been one of the nation's most important symbols for centuries. The powerful lion brandishes its front paws while standing on its hind legs. Its tail sticks upward and curls at the end, and its tongue sticks out. The image is encircled by a rim frame in which there is a Latin inscription, "CONFIDENS DNO NON MOVETVR" (Belief in God is not moved).
On the reverse, a knight stands behind a shield. He has both a mustache and beard, and his face is not obscured by his armor. In front of him is a shield that bears the same lion rampant design that features on the obverse. This face also has a Latin inscription on the rim. It reads, "MO ARG PRO CON FOE BELG GEL" (Silver Money of the Province of the Netherlands Confederation).
