Follow the Golden Map to One of America’s First Silver Dollars

The Dutch Lion dollar – or Leeuwendaalder – is considered by many coin experts to be America’s first silver dollar. We’ll let the experts debate that question, but it If it’s not the first silver dollar to circulate in the New World, it was certainly one of the first and proved to be an important coin for Colonial America’s trade and commerce. How important? Important enough to be listed as the fourth coin in the United States Red Book! The original coins were struck from approximately 1575 to 1713 – and few of these coins exist today.

In this offer, you can obtain a gold foil map minted in 24-karat gold by the Royal Dutch Mint that features the designs used on the famous Lion Dollar. The central illustration of this 8½" x 11" map features an image of an “Old World” nautical chart similar to what would have been used in the 1600s. In addition to the Americas, the map shows other Dutch colonies where the Lion Dollars circulated! We don’t expect our limited supply of these intricate golden maps to be “lion” around for long!
