Product Description

Image 3-28-17 at 10.49 AMNew York Lion Dollar & 2017 Lion Dollar Restrike

New York- the global epicenter of finance, the standard for commerce, fashion, and culture, and the entry point for Europeans looking for a better life in the New World. Known as “New Amsterdam”, the Dutch Colony of New York traded in Dutch-minted silver Lion “Daalders”, the direct origin of our dollar denomination. The Lion Dollar was the silver standard for world trade in the 16th and 17th Centuries and secured the monetary stability of New York as the new colonial paper money struggled to avoid rapid inflation. Every collection of U.S. coins should start with the Lion Dollar! 300+ Years of New York history in your hands!
