Dutch Rider or Ducaton. Engraved and bezeled as a lottery or prize announcement. Extremely Fine.We handled this piece in 2004 and described it as follows: <p>"1796 American-related engraved Dutch rider or ducaton. Extremely Fine. A remarkable and fascinating piece that suggests the close commercial ties between the nascent United States of America and Holland in the earliest days of the Republic. The reverse of this piece, a ducaton of Utrecht, has been smoothed and carefully engraved with the following: Op. No. 1137 / den 1 Novembr 1796 / Getrokken door / L.J. / Ein Amerikaansche / Premie Groot / (G) 30000. The inscription has been translated as follows: On Number 1137, On November 1st 1796, Drawn by LJ, An American, Premium (or prize) of 30,000 guilders. Many Americans were in the Netherlands in the 1790s as trade connections between the two nations grew, a process began in 1782 when John Adams was accepted as U.S. envoy. The precise identity of LJ is not known, but the premium he received is likely a payment from a lottery. The piece shows pleasing peripheral toning and is housed in a silver beaded frame of contemporary manufacture. Clearly this was a prize of some importance, and the fact that LJ was "ein Amerikaansche" was a fact of some importance. Perhaps greater research can elucidate his identity. Engraved pieces from this period, especially European ones that relate to Americans, are scarce, particularly so in crown size."<p>This fascinating piece is the only engraved coin related to an 18th century lottery involving an American weve ever encountered.<p>.<strong>To view supplemental information and all items from the Sydney F.
