A popular design theme for modern mints to issue in silver bullion coin collectors are those images that were previously used in circulation. The United States Mint does this with the obverse images of Liberty in its American Eagle Series, while the Royal Mint of England does the same with its Britannia coins. While some are modified versions of the originals, those such as the Royal Dutch Mint’s Silver Lion Dollars replicate exact designs used on coins issued hundreds of years ago. Right now, 2019 1 oz Silver Netherlands Lion Dollars are available to purchase online at Silver.com.
