These coins were struck as reproductions of the Dutch daalder, which was originally created in 1617, making these 400th-anniversary editions of the iconic designs. Today, we call these restrikes Lion Dollars due to the amazing lion designs on both the obverse and reverse faces of the coins.
A knight standing near his shield can be seen on the obverse face of these coins. The shield features the image of a lion in what is called the rampant position. You will also find the inscriptions “MO. ARG. PRO. CONFOE. BELG,” which is short for “Moneta Argentea Provinciarum Confoederatum Belgicarum,” meaning “Silver money of the Province of the Netherlands.” You will also find the letters “TRA,” which represent Utrecht. A delicate beadwork design surrounds the main imagery.
On the reverse, you will find the same heraldic lion design that is found on the shield on the obverse side of the coin. The large lion is shown standing on just its hind legs. A beadwork pattern encircles the image of the lion, separating it from the engravings “2017” and the motto of the United Provinces, which is “CONFIDENS. DNO. NON. MOVETVR,” meaning “Who trusts in the Lord is not moved.”
Established in 1567, the Royal Dutch Mint was owned by the Dutch state until 2016. In 2016, Heylen Group purchased the mint. Today, the mint makes coins for numerous foreign national banks that are part of the Eurozone. The mint also produces coins for Honduras, Latvia, and Guatemala.
