Gold from the short-lived Batavian Republic
A key element of one of the world’s most famous gold coin series, the 1800 Gold Ducat before you was issued by the short-lived Batavian Republic.
The successor to the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands, the Batavian Republic was established in 1795 through intervention by French revolutionary forces. Before replaced in 1806 by the Kingdom of Holland, ruled by the brother of Napoleon Bonaparte, the republic maintained Dutch commercial interests in the East Indies – which included the issuance of coins. As with all Dutch Ducats, the Batavian Ducat type was readily accepted as a trade coin, and circulated worldwide. Naturally enough, this famous type was used in the currency-starved colony of New South Wales after European settlement of Australia in 1788.
Struck in the year that the Ducat was enshrined in the Proclamation of 1800 – Australia’s first official currency system – we have two Batavian Republic 1800 Gold Ducats available. In highly collectable Very Fine condition, and surprisingly affordable, do not miss this golden opportunity! Click add to cart now!
