The obverse field of 1 Ducat Gold Netherlands Coins includes the image of a knight. This knight stands looking to the right with a sword resting on his right shoulder and a cluster of seven arrows in his left hand. The Latin legend around the outside of the coin’s design field is abbreviated on most coins from the original Concordia Res Parvae Crescunt. This translates as “Union makes small things grow.”
If you look closely, older coins have a three-letter legend at the end of the abbreviated Concordia Res Par Cres.” Those final three letters indicate the mint that issued the coin. Examples include GEL for Gelderland, HOL for Holland, or TRA for Utrecht, the latter being the forerunner to the modern Royal Dutch Mint.
On the reverse side of the 1 Ducat Gold Netherlands Coin is an ornamental border surrounding a legend frame. Within this frame is another abbreviated Latin phrase, this one stating “Mo. Ord. Provin. Foeder. Belg. Ad. Leg. Imp.” Translated into English that reads “A coin of the provinces of the United Netherlands according to the law of the Empire.”
