The ‘Scheepjesschelling’ is one of the most well-known Dutch coins. The ‘schelling’ (shilling) was designed to monetize a coin of better quality. Besides, a warship had to be printed on the reverse, to show the naval force of the Republic. This is how the name ‘Scheepjesschelling’ was originated. De coin was internationally successful, but was also very wanted as a trade currency in the East.
The obverse of the Scheepjesschelling from West-Friesland shows a warship with a flag on the stern and the inscription ‘DEVS. FORTITVDO. ET. SPES. NOSTRA’. This proverb can be translated to ‘God is our strength and hope’. The reverse shows the provincial coat of arms of West-Friesland and the inscription ‘MON. NOV. ORDIN. WEST. FRISIAE’, in full MONETA NOVA ORDINUM FRISIAE. This means: new silver coin of Friesland.
