Why purchase this 24 karat gold foil Lion Dollar Old World Map?
The Dutch Lion Dollar, or Leeuwendaalder, was minted from about 1575-1713. Introduced to the New World by the settlers of the New Amsterdam (New York) colony, the coin is considered by many to be America's first silver dollar. During an age of exploration and discovery, the Lion Dollar was circulated in many key ports across the globe. This exciting map, crafted from 24 karat gold by the Royal Dutch Mint, demonstrates the extensive reach of the historic silver dollar series.
Impressively Detailed Colorized Map
The map is a replica of a nautical chart used by sailors in the 1600s. Important port cities where Lion Dollars were circulated are indicated on the map by a heraldic lion symbol. The lower left features the obverse of the Lion Dollar, depicting a standing knight surrounded by an inscription that translates as "silver money of the Province of the Netherlands." The Lion Dollar's reverse appears in the opposite corner, illustrating a heraldic lion encircled by the motto of the United Provinces: "CONFIDENS. DNO. NON. MOVETVR" (Who trusts in the Lord is not moved).
