Each coin you purchase from this listing will come in a plastic slab straight from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). This slab will give key details about the coin, as well as protect it from any potential damage. Coins given a PF70 grade will be in perfect condition. These coins have also been given a UCAM designation. UCAM stands for Ultra Cameo, which means that the devices are heavily frosted, while the background is deeply-mirrored to give exceptional contrast.
With this release, you will get a 400th-anniversary issue of this coin. The coins that these are supposed to represent were originally created in 1617 and called the Dutch lion daalder. Today, the restrike versions are called Lion Dollars because of the stunning lion designs found on the coins.
The obverse face bears the image of a knight standing aside his shield. The shield features the image of a rampant lion. Engravings include “MO. ARG. PRO. CONFOE. BELG,” short for “Moneta Argentea Provinciarum Confoederatum Belgicarum,” meaning “Silver money of the Province of the Netherlands.” The letters “TRA” represent Utrecht, and a beadwork design surrounds the design.
The heraldic lion is featured proudly on the reverse face of these coins. It is the same lion that is found on the shield on the obverse of the coin. There is a beadwork pattern that surrounds the lion and the entire design of the coin. On this face, you will find the engravings “2017” and the motto of the United Provinces “CONFIDENS. DNO. NON. MOVETVR,” meaning “Who trusts in the Lord is not moved.”
Established by the Dutch state in 1567, the Royal Dutch Mint has been producing coins for more than 400 years. The mint was purchased by the Heylen Group in 2016, and now it produces coins for numerous foreign national banks that are part of the Eurozone. The mint also makes coins for Latvia, Honduras, and Guatemala.
