The VOC, with an impressive fleet of merchant ships, established Dutch colonies all along their trade routes; in western Africa, South Africa, and at various locations in the East Indies including the strategic islands of Java, in Indonesia, and Sri Lanka. The two main “hub” ports were Galle Harbor and fort in Sri Lanka, and Batavia (now Jakarta), on Java.
Special Note: This particular Ship Shilling was minted at the Zeeland mint in the Netherlands, and features, on the reverse (back), the swimming lion design. The motto for this design is "I Struggle and Survive."
