It took a Dutch ship or fleet three to six months to travel from Holland to Batavia. Pirates, storms, treacherous waters and warfare took their toll on these tall ships. More than 250 were lost during the two centuries the VOC operated, scattering countless treasure to the bottom of the shipping lanes from East Asia to northern Europe. This fact prompted curiosity about the origins of the specific group of copper duit coins from which these were selected.  Where and when these coins were found is in fact shrouded in mystery.
