Issued in 2017 by the Royal Dutch Mint in the Netherlands this 1oz .9999 silver proof Lion Dollar restrike is based on the original design of the Lion Daalder which was first issued in 1617!
The obverse features a standing knight. In front of his legs rests a shield bearing a lion in what is known as the rampant position. (This lion is found on both the Dutch and Belgian coats of arms.) Within two circles of beadwork around the rim is the legend MO. ARG. PRO. CONFOE. BELG. which is short for MONETA ARGENTEA PROVINCIARUM CONFOEDERATUM BELGICARUM,”. Translated this phrase means ”Silver money of the Province of the Netherlands”. Also inscribed in the legend are the letters TRA which represent the city of Utrecht which is the home of the Royal Dutch Mint.
The reverse depicts a larger version of the same heraldic lion. Like the obverse, two circles of beadwork around the rim enclose a legend. This one reads: 2017. CONFIDENS. DNO. NON. MOVETVR which translates into "Who trusts in the lord is not moved."
