The Netherlands Gold Coins: Sizes and Designs

Due to its long and impressive history, The Netherlands has a large collection of various gold coins of different sizes, such as ducats, ducatons, duits, stuivers, and cavailers. The most popular among Dutch gold coins is indeed the 10 Guilder Gold Coin. These coins are also called Gold “Gulden” or “Florin”, and the Netherland Gold Coins are also referred as “Holland Gold Coins”, causing some confusion among collectors and investors. The 10 Gulden Gold Coin is made of .1947 troy ounce of .900 pure gold, but the Gulden Gold Coins were also produced in 1, 5 and 20 Gulden denominations of 0.2652 .750 fine gold (1 Gulden), 0.0973 oz. and 0.3894 oz. of .900 pure gold (5 and 20 Guldens). The Guilder was the official currency coin of Dutch from 1680 to 2002, but the gold version was introduced only in 1818 and was suspended from circulation between 1853 and 1875. The Gold Guilder coin was then used for another 125 years before it was replaced with euro. These exceptional Netherland Gold Coins are significant historical gold items on the precious metal market because they contain more gold than many other European coins.

The Netherlands Lire Gold Coins

The history of the Netherlands Lire Gold Coins dates back to 1670 when due to a huge merchant shipping fleet, the Dutch required a medium of exchange to facilitate its trading. Dutch Lire Gold Coins were soon issued in silver versions. However, the gold issue was released more than 100 years after. The design of the 10 Guilder Gold Coin differs according to their periods of mintage. On the obverse side of each coin is depicted the reigning king or queen, William I, William II, William III and Wilhelmina I, and on the reverse side of the coin is depicted the Netherlands’ Coat of Arms, the lion clutching swords and arrows, topped with the royal crown. Along with the Coat of Arms, on the reverse side of the coin is also engraved the coin’s denomination, the mintage date and the words “KONINGRIJK DER NEDERLANDEN”, meaning the “Kingdom of the Netherlands." On the obverse side of the coin, along with the profile picture of the king/queen is engraved the name of the monarch and the words “GOD ZIJ MET ONS” which means “God is with us”.
