The Lion Dollar is an iconic trade coin which has been a part of the Royal Dutch Mint annual program since 2017. The Lion Dollar is named after the image of the Dutch Lion on the obverse and was struck for the first time in the Netherlands in 1575. At that time, each province had their own lion and their own mint where the Lion Dollars were struck. The Lion Dollar was mostly used in sea trade and became an internationally used trade coin.

The lion from the province of Overijssel
After the restrikes from the provinces of Utrecht, Zeeland, Gelderland and Holland, the province of Overijssel now provides the original Lion Dollar the restrike is based on. It has been exactly 320 years since the Overijssel Lion Dollar was struck for the last time. Nowadays, the original 1701 Lion Dollar in good quality is very hard to find. This proves the popularity of the former trade coin.

Sommer Dutch Glass Art coin holder
The Lion Dollar in Silver Proof is found in a luxury coin holder by Sommer Dutch Glass Art. In the bamboo base the Lion Dollar is found in impeccable Proof-quality, protected by a capsule. The removable glass globe depicts a line drawing of the iconic lion in high quality laser engraving. The round shape of the glass enlarges the issue so you can admire its fine details. The Lion Dollar in Silver Proof comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
