Silver Lion Dollar (Leeuwendaalder) of 1567 with the Dutch lion. Introduced by the province of Holland during the uprising against Philip II: The war for independence of the United Provices. Official weight was 27,68 g and fineness of 0.750. The rate at introduction was 32 stivers, about 10% above the intrinsic value. The difference was used to finance the war.

Neat coins, everyone!

I have a uniface Salzburg 2 pfennig too, but it's not due to be shown in this thread for about two more months (...by which point I hope I will remember to take a photo).

Meanwhile, it seems that this coin had been conclusively-ish attributed to 1575, so I feel comfortable enough posting it here for today...



Spanish Netherlands, Philip II
Province of Holland, oord (double duit)
Cf. Numista 28280; not sure of the actual attribution

Obverse: PHILIP:D:G:COMES.HOLL[A]: 157[5]
Reverse: AVX.NO[S]T.IN[.]NOM[.DO]M

At only 4.74 grams it seems to be severely underweight for the type; I'm not sure why. In that kind of condition (especially without a legible date) I wouldn't expect a modern counterfeit. Maybe there was something wrong with the planchet.


[EDIT: fixed minor typo]

A great sampling of coins posted yesterday--keep 'em coming!

Here is a Groschen from the German Free City of Hildesheim dated 1574 AD:

Nice! I remember @pepactonius commenting upthread that he also had something well into the 16th c. from Hildesheim.

Here is the guy the Dutch found so revolting in the 1570s (referring to recent Holland coins of @spence, @eligius and @j1m).
1574 Spanish Netherlands/Brabant, 1/2 Philipsdaalder (Demi-ecu philippe), Antwerp mint

There are really many nice coins here (I especially like that French teston, @tdziemia, and the beautiful Leeuwendaalder, @Eligius). I cannot contribute that much in this century, but for today I do have coin - a Swedish coin, for a change.

Sweden 1573, 2 öre, John III, Stockholm.



John III became king in 1568 after having deposed his impopular and mentally unstable elder brother Erik XIV. Before that, John had been held captive by his brother, accused of treason because of his marriage to the Polish princess Catherine Jagiellon, whose brother Sigismund II of Poland Erik was at war with. Now it was Erik's turn to be imprisoned. He died after a few years (rumor has it that John had him poisoned). John's and Catherine's son Sigismund eventually became king of Poland and Lithuania, as we have seen on coins here.

Will be out for another 20 years now.

Meantime, on the other side of the Baltic Sea ...
Sigismund II had died childless in 1572, the last male ruler of the Jagiello dynasty (his other sister, Anna, would later marry Stefan Batory and reign as queen while Batory was king).
But Sigismund had left as his legacy a new political entity, the elective monarchy of the new Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (previously Poland and Lithuania were ruled jointly in a "personal union" under the Jagiello kings).

There was a nearly year long intrerregnum between SIgismund's death and the election of Henry III of France to the Polish-Lithuanian throne in mid-1573. The 1573 interregnum coinage of Gdansk was the only standard circulating coinage issued between 1570 and 1578 in Polish parts of the Commonwealth (there are also some Courland issues, and siege money from Gdansk in 1577).

1573 Poland, 1 denar interregnum issue, Gdansk mint.
