The Netherlands - Zeeland, West Friesland, Holland - VOC 'Duiten' 1731/1794 (12 Different)


Collection with 12 different VOC Duit coins. Struck in the provinces Holland, Zeeland and West Friesland

Additional information:

During the 1594-1602 period, various so-called 'compagnieën van verre' (long-distance companies) traded in the east. These various independent companies were often involved in fierce competition, which had adverse effects on profits.
That is why the government decided to found a single company.
This is how in 1602 the 'Verenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie' (VOC) (Dutch East India Company) came into being, which had the exclusive right in the Netherlands to trade with Asia.
In 1799 the VOC dissolved.


The 'compagnieën van verre' traded using currencies such as Spanish Reals, which were even copied in Dordrecht and Middelburg.
The later VOC also used Reals as well as high-value Dutch gold and silver coins, which were also in circulation here.
Examples include the gold ducats and silver 'leeuwendaalder' coins, 'rijder' coins and 'rijksdaalder' coins.
When minted coins were very scarce, the export of bars of gold and silver was permitted as well.
Due to the demand for small change, 'schelling' coins, double 'stuiver' coins and 'stuiver' coins were also brought to east, followed by 'duit' coins from 1724 onwards.
This first shipment of 'duit' coins consisted of the common Dutch type from the Dordrecht mint.
In Asia however, one 'duit' coin was worth ¼ 'stuiver' coin instead of ⅛ 'stuiver' coin, so its value was doubled there.
This opened the door to large-scale illegal trade of 'duit' coins in Asia, which soon led to the decision to start making an own VOC-type 'duit' coin.
Only this specific type was declared valid.
Most of these 'duit' coins only feature the coat of arms of the province where they were struck on the reverse side, and no additional text.
The obverse features the VOC monogram with the year below.
This new type was first struck in 1726.
