Details

Netherlands, Holland. 1780 ducat. AU-58 (PCGS). A charming Revolutionary War-era gold coin, struck the year that Netherlands was dragged into the conflict by Great Britain after years of providing material support to the rebels. The "Ducat of Holland" was one of the gold coins included on the Continental Congress' September 2, 1776 list of gold and silver coins that were considered legal tender in the new nation. Given the abundant trade between Americans and the Dutch in the West Indies in this era, undoubtedly this was true in reality and not just on paper. This example is bright yellow gold with good lustre and eye appeal. Some evidence of handling is noted, appropriate to the grade, but there are no notable flaws.
