Netherlands 1/2 and 1 Rijks Daalder  1606 to 1693
Netherlands 1/2 and 1 Rijks Daalder 1606 to 1693

This long-lived series of coins was struck to the standard of the reichsthaler used in the areas of the Holy Roman Empire that now roughly correspond to Germany. The rose mint mark on Simon's coin places it at the Overyssel mint, but other Dutch mints struck these coins as well, including Utrecht, Holland, West Friesland and Zeeland.

The key to determining the mint location is finding the mint mark on the coin. The mint mark is placed at the start of the obverse or reverse legend.

HOLLAND: X (crossed wings of a windmill)
OVERYSSEL: five-petaled rose
UTRECHT: Shield
WEST FRIESLAND: 'WEST FRI' and rosette
ZEELAND: Castle
