Welcome to Aleph Coin Blog (Circulated Silver & Gold Coins in The Northern Malay States - Kedah, Perlis & Penang - Circa 1600 until 1957). This blog will preview my current collection or new information of coins that will later be added into my on-going project (that I am doing independently, due to my interest in History and Numismatic). I might be adding information of other coin and banknote that I came across. I am looking forward and much appreciated if someone can come to give information, sharing knowledge, sample of coins into making this project a reality. I also receive support from Dr Ibrahim Baker (a medical doctor, who has so much interest in Malay coins) and Dr Mahani Musa (expert in Penang's history, USM lecturer). Should you have information to relay, don't hesitate to contact me at - Together, we work to preserving our history...

Silver Rider (Ducaton) 1767

Obverse: FOE : BELG : HOL MO : NO : ARG : CON

This is an interesting piece for me, aside to Perak Tampang, this is one of item that chip me the most. But that is not a case here.

I can't be sure whether this coin circulated in Tanah Melayu (The Malay Land) or not, since the seller claims to have bought this from Sumatera, Indonesia - which of course he can finds this there, since Indonesia were parts of Holland's colony.

I took this into collection considering that I am collecting silver coins, and it won't be wrong to add one more piece of item. I cannot discuss much about this coin until I find more information about it.

But, these are some interesting information that I have found on

Title:x Netherlands, Holland, Dukaton or Silver Rider, 1767,
knight galloping right, rev. crwoned arms (Dav.1827; Del.1014), ...

Description:Netherlands, Holland, Dukaton or Silver Rider,
1767, knight galloping right, rev. crwoned arms (Dav.1827; Del.1014)

This coin is estimated to be on Fine condition. If you wish to see more details on the coin, click on respective image to enlarge.

If someone have information on this coin, please email me or just comment here. Thank you.
