On September 3, 1609, Henry Hudson, an English Explorer on behalf of the United East India Co. entered the harbor which is now known as New York City in an attempt to find a NW passage to the Indies. He Searched every coastal inlet & on the 12th he took his ship, the Halve Maen (Half Moon) up the river which now bears his name for 150 miles & found the land where Albany is now. Henry realized that the river was too shallow to go any further, so he turned around. His reports resulted in the Dutch settling the area & with them they brought these coins to the New World.
3 coins and a ship charm.
