In June 1712, the Dutch East India Company (VOC) ship Zuytdorp was wrecked on a notoriously treacherous part of the Western Australian coast, south of Shark Bay, now known as Zuytdorp Cliffs. As well as various trade goods, the ship was carrying a highly valuable load of silver coins valued at around 250,000 Dutch guilders. Zuytdorp was yet another Dutch VOC ship traveling to the Indies and trading in rare and exotic spices.

This replica medallion honours the Dutch coinage which was almost lost to the sea in one of Australia's many famous shipwrecks.
