The shipwreck of the Vliegenthart is a significant event, marking the loss of a Dutch East India Company vessel in 1735 off the coast of the Netherlands. The ship sank with a treasure hoard of gold and silver coins intended for trade in the East Indies.

The obverse typically features a knight in armor standing right, holding a sword on his shoulder and a bundle of arrows, symbolizing strength and unity.

The reverse displays an ornate tablet with the inscription "MO ORD | PROVIN | FOEDER | BELG AD | LEG IMP," which translates to "Gold money of the United Provinces of the Netherlands under imperial law"
