The Ducat has an intricate history, as mentioned earlier. This format of gold coin was released as early as the Middle Ages and embraced in numerous styles, weights, and sizes by countless empires, kingdoms, and city-states throughout the European continent. Among the most popular forms was the Dutch Ducat, which was first, issued by the Holland province in 1583 as a copy of Hungarian Ducats.
By the early 1600s, Amsterdam had become a center of international trade and Dutch-type Ducats were being provided for usage as worldwide trading currency. By the 1850s and the formation of Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Austrians would adopt the Dutch Ducat as a format for gold trade currency.
