    Default VOC coin.

    Here is an interesting coin, not military related but interesting nonetheless. It is a VOC (Dutch East India Company) coin dated 1791. It was picked up along with a couple of others in an old building being demolished in Jakarta, Indonesia, a couple of years ago. I have quite an interest in the VOC as there are many shipwrecks along the Western Australian coast that were VOC ships, the most famous, or infamous, being the story of the Batavia, the shipwreck and subsequent murder of 125 people. I thought the coin may be of some interest to a few forum members who I know are also interested in the VOC.

    Cheers,
    Dave.

    I love these VOC coins! They are a bit hard to come by here in the US though.
