Today the ‘Official restrike: Ducaton "Silver Rider" - Royal Delft edition’ was presented at the World Money Fair in Berlin. In presence of the Dutch Deputy Ambassador Mrs. Willemijn van Haaften, Royal Dutch Mint CEO Vincent van Hecke and Royal Delft CEO Henk Schouten.
Royal Delft and the Royal Dutch Mint, both centuries-old companies which originated from craftsmanship, have joined forces. This collaboration resulted in a unique issue and a beautiful Delft Blue coin holder. Within this official Delft Blue coin holder you can find the restrike of the very exclusive Ducaton, also known as “Silver Rider”.
The Delft Blue coin holder depicts the minting of coins in the Dutch Golden Age. The Dutch Deputy Ambassador simulated this old minting technique with an antique hammer at the World Money Fair. With the stroke of the hammer she launched the collaboration between the Royal Dutch Mint and Royal Delft.
