The Royal Dutch Mint is a company owned entirely by the Dutch State, and since 1807 the only Dutch entity that is allowed to strike and issue coins.

On 17 September 1806, when The Netherlands were under the rule of King Louis Napoleon, he decided that the striking and distribution of coins should be by a single, national body. This was in contrast to the Middle Ages custom of large trading cities having their own mint and coins, which resulted in several coins circulating within the country, and many levels of controlling bureaucracy.

Originally it was the intention to found the mint in the capital city of Amsterdam but, since there was insufficient finance available, it was decided to locate the National Mint seat in Utrecht.

After Napoleon was defeated in 1813, and the Kingdom of the Netherlands was founded with William I as King, the Mint was renamed as Rijks Munt. What is now known as Belgium was a part of the new kingdom, and a second Mint was located in Brussels. When Belgium achieved independence in 1839, the Rijks Munt became the only mint in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The provincial coins had been minted before the unification of the Mint were still in circulation. Due to their relatively high intrinsic value, the "new" coins would only gain popularity with the passage of time. In 1849 the provincial coins were officially taken out of circulation.

In 1901 the company was placed under the supervision of the Ministry of Finance, and in 1912 the Mint officially became a company owned by the State. At the end of the German occupation during the Second World War, in 1944, coins were produced in the United States. This was necessary to ensure that there would be enough currency available after the liberation. In 1994 's Rijks Munt was renamed as De Nederlandse Munt NV. It became a company, 100% of whose shares are owned by the Dutch State. The Queen awarded the company the prefix Koninklijk (Royal) five years later, and the company was now allowed to call itself De Koninklijke Nederlandse Munt (The Royal Dutch Mint).

Old World looking coin

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I bought 5 of these coins a few months ago when they first became available. I love 'em. They look like really old coins (but in brand new condition) that you might discover in an old moldy chest in someones attic somewhere in Amsterdam. They're relatively low mintage and will increase in value.

Best silver coin with caveats

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

In mid-september I bought 5 rolls of these lovely coins. For the collectible low mintage of 25k, the premium is more than justified. The coin surfaces are extremely shiny and mirror-like. Out of 101 BU coins I own, almost no surface scratch has been seen. Personally the Lion Dollar is the most beautiful coin I saw in 2017. You're lucky if you get one due to the low mintage. Nevertheless, the super-coin has few quality issues: 1. milk-spot: Both the BU version and the PF version have milk-spot issues. 2. the edges carry usually visible dings/dents. As a "restrike" the Dutch Mint managed to generate a decent frosty/mirror contrast on the surface, however, the edges of the coins are only perfect in less than 10%. In comparison, the silver Austrian Philhamoniker also possess smooth edges but the quality control is clearly superior if you consider the mintage of the latter (millions per year) vs the Lion Dollar Restrike (25k).


  • Pros
  • Value (low premium over spot)

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
