This is a Dutch 10 Guilder Gold Coin.
These coins were issued in the Netherlands and are our choice of date.
The 10 guilders are struck from 0.900 fine gold and contain 0.1947 troy ounces of the precious metal.
The Dutch Guilder gold coin features a portrait of Queen Wilhelmina as the obverse design, with the reverse design revealing the Netherlands Lesser Coat of Arms. The coin has also been referred to as the "Wilhelmina Gulden" and "mature Wilhelmina Guilder."
Queen Wilhelmina enjoyed a long reign from 1890 to 1948, and four different designs of gold 10 guilder coins were issued in this time. The fourth type was issued between 1925 and 1933 inclusive, although only five dates were issued, including 1932.
The Dutch monetary unit has various names. In the Netherlands, it is known as a gulden or florin, but English speakers usually refer to it as a guilder.
Dutch Guilders may also be referred to as gulden, guilden, or florins. This is sold as a bullion coin at a low premium above the gold spot price, the finish is uncirculated - this is not the grade. The coins may have some small scuffs or edge knocks.
10 Guilders are a popular choice for investors looking to pay a small premium above the spot gold price. Similiar in size to the sovereign, the Guilder, together with the French 20 Franc, Italian 20 Lire, German 20 Mark and the Swiss 20 Franc were used as circulation coins in Europe.
