Netherlands Antilles Netherlands Antilles 1 and 2 1/2 Cents  1952 to 1970
Netherlands Antilles Netherlands Antilles 1 and 2 1/2 Cents 1952 to 1970

The rampant lion on these coins from the Netherlands Antilles is pretty cool. The Netherlands Antilles has two groups of islands, including Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao, off the Venezuelan coast.

These are modern coins and are worth face value or just a little more. Collectors will pay a few US dollars for fully uncirculated specimens. The one cent coin in our picture would probably sell retail for $3 or so. If it were a 2 1/2 cent coin, it would probably go for $5.
