    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 been keeping half an eye out for one of these for several years, so delighted to finally get one for my own "Tangent" Crown size collection. Cyprus 45 Piastre 1928:

    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.
