Another Dutch Lion Daalder, an early one, 1576.
They played an important part in world trade, before being eclipsed by the higher fineness 8 reale. The Daalder purity was .750.
I have an 1830 4 soles and an 1862 8 soles. These are nice types.

That is a beautiful circ'd example with amazing surfaces (great photo, by the way). I would love to have that in my long term hold collection. Great find.
Nice...I posted my 1927 Proof Crown the other day...think in a Post your World Coins thread...this one looks almost proof by photos, if hard to tell.
You are quite right, it’s described as almost prooflike.
I've been collecting 1/2 crown and crown size coins since I was a kid as a side-thing. I have proceeded in no particular order or logic, just bought them when I came across them. Something about big beautiful silver coins. Now all I need to do is take some photos of them.
Never saw one of these. We're these minted as is?
