The lion dollar circulated throughout the Middle East and was imitated in several German and Italian cities. It was also popular in the Dutch East Indies as well as in the Dutch New Netherlands Colony (New York). The lion dollar also circulated throughout the English colonies during the Seventeenth and early Eighteenth centuries. Examples circulating in the colonies were usually fairly well worn so that the design was not fully distinguishable, thus they were sometimes referred to as "dog dollars."

Holland is a region in the western part of the Netherlands. The term Holland is also frequently used as a pars pro toto to refer to the whole of the   Netherlands. This usage is generally accepted but disliked by many   Dutch people in the other parts of the Netherlands.

From the 10th century to the 16th century, Holland   proper was a unified political region, a county ruled by the Count of   Holland. By the 17th century, Holland had risen to become a maritime and   economic power, dominating the other provinces of the Dutch Republic.
