Basically, its the Dutch equivalent of the Spanish piece of 8, and likewise used in early Americas colonies as the basis for the dollar

European silver trade coinage, a Ducatoon, its a good silver at .941 fineness.

With this design often referred to as a "silver rider dollar" due to the mounted horseman obverse
The reverse shows the dutch coat of arms with the date 1664 above.

These are a "common" salvage from shipwrecks, of which this is probably one.


17th century Pirates loved them.
