Netherlands Zeeland Duit  1714 to 1797
Netherlands Zeeland Duit 1714 to 1797

Zeeland (Zeelandia, Zeland, Zelandia, Zealand) is in the south western corner of the Netherlands. The lion and waves in a crowned shield is a prominent symbol of Zeeland. You see this symbol on several coins from the Dutch East India Company (with a VOC annotation), shown at this CoinQuest link.

The denominations at the time were duit and stuiver, with 8 duit in one stuiver. In general, duit coins were made of copper and stuiver coins were made of silver. There is, however, a silver duit minted from 1725 to 1788 which is quite valuable. A gold half duit was minted with dates 1753 and 1755. This page applies only to copper duits with the large ZEE LAN DIA (not VOC) printed on the reverse side.

The listing below gives typical catalog values for copper Zeeland duits. Use our Important Terminology page to convert these values to actual buy and sell values.

worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10

1735
