After the introduction of the lion dollar, Holland also came up with the need to enter a heavier rijksdaalder, a coin that would comply with the German laws at that time. The Baltic Sea trade also created demand for a better coin. The first emission of the prince dollar took place from 1583 – 1585. The original silver coin has an armored statue of Willem van Oranje on the obverse, he is carrying a sword in his right hand. The inscription contains the saying ‘Vigilate Deo confidentes’, which means ‘Watch, trusting on God’. The reverse contains a helmeted provincial coat of arms. With the restrike, the year 2022 is also placed on the coin. The Prince Dollar in Gold Proof will be delivered in a luxurious packaging, including a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
