1729 Netherlands Ducat
With an intricately detailed knight on the obverse surrounded by the legend CONCORDIA.RES PAR.CRES.HOL (an abbreviation for CONCORDIA RES PARvae CREScunt HOLlandiae), which translates roughly as "Small States Flourish by Concord - Holland".
The reverse features the five lines of bold text MO:ORD PROVIN FOEDER BELG.AD LEG.IMP (an abbreviation for MOneta ORDinum PROVINciarum FOEDERatorum BELGicarum AD LEGem IMPerii), which translates as the rather dry "Coin of the Government of the Provincial Federation of Belgium Conforming with Imperial Law".
And this is the finest example of this type we've ever had a chance to buy, with a razor sharp strike, lovely original color and a trace of pretty coppery toning.
