Unique Coin Holder from Royal Delft
The Ducaton 2022 of the Royal Dutch Mint is presented in the familiar earthenware coin holder, fabricated by Royal Delft. The Delftware coin holder reflects the scene on the coin and also shows a rider on horseback. Below the rider you see the Dutch coat of arms. The scene is surrounded by the text MO: NO: ARG: CONFOE: BELG: PRO: TRAI (New silver coin of the United Provinces of the Netherlands, Utrecht). The Royal Delfst coin holders are traditionally made, watch the video to see how! Moreover, the coin holders containing the golden restrikes of the Ducaton 2022 are hand-painted and uniquely numbered.
The numismatic term “Piedfort” stands for a coin struck in double thickness. Besides in 1 ounce silver, the Silver Rider is also available in 2 ounces, twice as thick than the regular edition. Traditionally, Piedfort coins were minted to convey prosperity and power. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, rulers gave these prestigious coins as gifts to their household. Today, Piedfort coins are highly sought-after collector's items.
