This 1 oz silver medal is based on one of the world’s most well-known and trusted trade coins of the late 16th century, the famed lion dollar (leeuwendaalder). The original was first minted by the Province of Holland in 1575 as a means of increasing trade between their many trading ports and outposts from Asia to the Americas, from Africa to Australia, and everywhere in between.

The lion daalder also greatly influenced the American silver coinage, especially the name of the new country’s currency, the dollar, which was first minted in 1794.

This second modern lion dollar restrike's reverse pays tribute to the province of Zeeland with a distinctive design of waves of water, which is symbolic of the struggle against the rising tides of water in this province. The obverse is based on an original Leeuwendaalder design from 1597, which depicts a standing anonymous knight. In front of his legs rests a shield representing the province of Zeeland. The shield bears a lion in what is known as the rampant position, and underneath are waves which represent water. Within two circles of beadwork around the rim is the legend MO NO ARG ORDIN ZEL, which translates to ”New Silver Coin of the Standard of Zeeland.” The reverse shows the same heraldic lion with waves depicted underneath magnified, and two circles of beadwork with the motto of the Province of Zeeland DOMINE SERVA NOS PERMIUS (“Lord, save us that we do not perish”).
