The Royal Dutch Mint presents the official restrike of the classic Utrecht “Scheepjes-Schelling,” or "Ship Shilling," from 1706. With an extremely limited mintage of only 25 coins, make sure to add this coin to your collection while supplies last.

The “Schelling” is a Dutch coin type first introduced into circulation in 1670. The Ship Shilling, also known as a trade coin, was used internationally mostly by traders and merchants on their ships at sea and had its nominal value fixed at six stuivers – or five cent coins.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 11.29 grams (.36297 oz) of .999 fine gold.
  • Mintage of only 25 coins worldwide.
  • APMEXclusive®.
  • The golden restrike of the Ship Shilling is delivered in a very special coin holder featuring casted acrylic. In the middle is the coin, and around it is a piece of cotton robe with a diameter of 10 mm: this is a reference to the popularity of the coin in overseas trading.
  • Obverse: A warship with a flag on the stern and the inscription, “ITA. RELINQUENDA. UT. ACCEPTA,” which is a proverb that can be loosely translated as, “Leave it like you got it.”
  • Reverse: Features the provincial coat of arms of Zeeland along with the inscription, “MON. NOV. ARGEN. ORDIN. ZELAND,” which in full reads "MONETA NOVA ARGENTEA ORDINUM ZELAND" – meaning "New Silver Coin of Zeeland."
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Dutch Mint.

Add a unique coin, only available in an extremely low mintage worldwide, to your collection today with this 2024 Netherlands Gold Proof Ship Shilling with a special treasure box!

2024 Gold Proof Ship Shilling from The Royal Dutch Mint
The Royal Dutch Mint is a company with an interesting history surrounding its inception. Since 1807, the Royal Dutch Mint has been owned entirely by the Dutch State and is the only entity that is allowed to strike and issue coins.

On September 17, 1806, when The Netherlands was still under the law of King Louis Napoleon, he decided the striking and distribution of coins should be by one singular national body. This was in contrast to the Middle Ages practice of large exchange cities each having their own mint and coins, which resulted in several coins circulating within the country.

Originally, the mint was to be founded in the capital city of Amsterdam, but due to a lack of sufficient funds, it was decided to place the national mint seat in Utrecht.

A few years later, after Napoleon was defeated in 1813, the Kingdom of the Netherlands was founded with William I as king and the mint was renamed as Rijks Munt. What is presently known as Belgium was a part of this new kingdom, which led to a second mint being in Brussels. When Belgium achieved its independence in 1839, the Rijks Munt once again became the only mint in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The regional coins that had been minted before the merger of the mint were still available in circulation. Due to their rather high intrinsic value, the "new" coins would gain popularity over the passage of time until the coins were officially taken out of circulation in 1849.

In 1901, the company was placed under the supervision of the Ministry of Finance until 1912, when the mint officially became a company owned by the state. At the end of the German occupation during the Second World War, coins were produced in the United States for a brief time. This U.S. assistance was necessary to guarantee there would be enough currency available for The Netherlands after its liberation. In 1994, 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 it was then allowed to call itself De Koninklijke Nederlandse Munt (The Royal Dutch Mint).
