RIXDOLLAR

, a silver coin, struck in several states and free cities in Germany, as also in Flanders, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, &c.

There is but little difference between the Rixdollar and the dollar, another silver coin struck in Germany, each being nearly equal to the French crown of three livres, or the Spanish piece of eight, or 4s. 6d, sterling.
