Netherlands Gold Ducat

$2,700.00 USD

The Dutch Gold Ducat played a crucial role in international trade during the Dutch Golden Age, a period when the Netherlands was a major maritime power. The coin's consistent weight and fineness made it a reliable and widely accepted currency for global commerce.

The obverse typically features a knight holding a bundle of arrows, symbolizing the unity of the Dutch provinces. The motto "Concordia Res Parvae Crescunt" (Unity makes strength) often accompanies the image.

The reverse usually displays an inscription within an ornamented square, often including the phrase "MO. AUR. REG. BELGII AD LEGEM IMPERII," which translates to "Gold coin of the Kingdom of the Netherlands according to the law of the empire".
