NA:4’s Coins Under the Mast

From the Press Release:

The special coins used in the ceremony were minted to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s discovery of the river in New York that bears his name. In 1609, Hudson, an English explorer employed by the Dutch East India Company, sailed his ship Half Moon up that river. Hudson’s explorations eventually led to the first permanent Dutch settlement in North America — a tiny village on the southern tip of Manhattan Island, which was named Nieuw Amsterdam.
