Extra information :
Coin from the Dutch VOC ship “De Zuytdorp” that sank off the very remote coast of Western Australia. The VOC ship Zuytdorp left Middelburg on 1 August 1711 but never arrived in Batavia. It sank in April 1712 on the cliffs at Sharkbay on the west coast of Australia. In 1927, some coins were found by Tom Pepper near the remains of a camp. In 1954, the Western Australia Museum associated these finds with the VOC ship 'De Zuytdorp'. Parts of the ship were recovered during diving activities in the sea at Shark Bay. Many objects have been found, and also many hats schellings from 1711. This example is in excellent condition and it is very rare as an entire edition of 6 stuivers of Zeeland mint was lost with the ship and is therefore not listed in catalogs with very few coins recovered. Very interesting rare historical coin.

The quality indication is MuntMarkt's professional assessment, but take a good look at the images for your own impression.
