The Netherlands Silver Ducat was one of a wild mix of foreign coins that circulated during the first days of modern Australia. These are known as ‘Coins of the Proclamation Era’. Used by the earliest European settlers, and therefore genuine artefacts of Australia’s earliest colonial period, the Coins of the Proclamation Era are hugely important from both an historical and a numismatic perspective.

With the Netherlands a major global trading power, it is no surprise that Dutch coins found their way to the shores of colonial Australia. Indeed, Dutch coins were very important in the early days of the colonial economy. A marvellous opportunity, we have a single example of the imposing Dutch Silver Ducat available in premium grade Extremely Fine condition. Click add to cart now
