Netherlands (Spanish) Liard and Half Liard  1602 to 1615
Netherlands (Spanish) Liard and Half Liard 1602 to 1615

The Spanish Netherlands was a portion of the Low Countries controlled by Spain from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century. When part of the Netherlands separated from Spanish rule and became the United Provinces in 1581, the remainder of the area became known as the Spanish Netherlands and was still under the control of Spain. This region comprised modern Belgium, Luxembourg as well as part of northern France.

Albert and Elizabeth ruled the province of Brabant (part of the Spanish Netherlands) from 1598 to 1621. Coinage issued included copper liards and silver patards, escalin, ducaton, florin and patagon, and gold albertin ans soverain. Many of these coins have inscriptions identical to, or similar to, the inscriptions on Dave's coin. Since Dave identified the composition as 'not precious,' we have selected the copper liard for this page. The silver and gold coins are worth more.

As to value, the main factor in these old coins is condition. The dates in the 1602 to 1615 coins are all about the same until you get into very tip-top condition, where some dates are better than others. The average catalog values for all dates in both liard and half liards run like this:

worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $90
well preserved: $180

If you have a well preserved specimen, seek out a knowledgeable collector or dealer.

Coin: 12053 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
