Buy the Gold Ducat

The Royal Dutch Mint annually issues Golden Ducats. This particular proof-quality gold coin is minted in 98.3% pure gold, weighs 3.494 grams and has a diameter of 21 mm.

History of the Golden Ducat

Since August 4, 1586, the Golden Dukaat has been in the Dutch Mint Act in the capacity of a commercial currency. The Golden Dukaat originated in the Republic of Venice and was later minted in the Netherlands. The Golden Dukaat has always been a strong currency; for centuries these coins were an important means of payment in international trade. They had a good reputation for their reliable weight and content.
 
They were readily accepted in Scandinavia, Poland and Russia, and the Gouden Dukaat was also frequently used in trade with Asia. As a result, the Dutch Golden Ducat grew to become one of the most important trade coins in the world. The Royal Dutch Mint annually mints Double and Single Golden Ducats by order of the Ministry of Finance to keep the memory of the Netherlands' rich trading past alive.
 
The Gouden Dukaat is not legal tender but is a popular investment and collector coin. This is because the coins are assured of their content and weight. Also, the circulation of each year varies, making years with low circulation very popular with collectors.
