The Zuytdorp was a ship of the Dutch East India Company that famously disappeared in the 18th century bearing a load of recently-minted silver coins. The ship was named for an extant village in Zeeland, Netherlands, and departed from the region in August 1711 headed for Batavia with its valuable silver coins in tow.

The Silver Australian Shipwreck Series catalogs the famous shipwrecks that have occurred along the coast of Australia. The Zuytdorp is one of the many shipwrecks that remained cloaked in mystery for centuries following the disappearance of the ship. The Zuytdorp departed the Netherlands in August 1711 destined for Batavia, but was never seen again after rounding the Cape of Good Hope.

Zuytdorp disappeared sometime in 1712 with no historical records of its sinking or capture. Many assumed the Zuytdorp was captured by pirates as it was carrying a load of silver coins to Batavia, the trading port of the Dutch East India Company.

The obverse side of 2020 1 oz Silver Australian Shipwreck Zuytdorp Coins features a right-profile bust of Queen Elizabeth II. This bust of the Queen is situated above a scene of carnage that many have assumed played out when the Zuytdorp sank. Silver coins are strewn along the ocean bottom with a human skeleton nearby. Above the waterline, survivors attempt to pull one another aboard a life raft as another survivor attempts to scale a sheer cliff wall along the rocky coast of Western Australia.

On the reverse face of the 2020 1 oz Silver Australian Shipwreck Zuytdorp Coin is a depiction of the Zuytdorp. The large ship wrecked sometime in 1712 along an area now known as the Zuytdorp Cliffs north of Perth along the coast of the state of Western Australia.

The Zuytdorp’s fate was first mentioned in 1834 when Aborigines mentioned a wreck to farmers near Perth. The colonists dispatched a rescue party, but finding no recent wreck gave up on the search. In 1927, the wreckage of the ship beneath the waters was first spotted from a high clifftop. The site was first visited in 1941 and explored in 1954, with a positive identification made courtesy of the silver coins found amidst the wreckage. The coins had a “1711” date and “Zeeland” inscribed.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
