Netherlands 10 and 25 Cents 1892 to 1897
King William III of the Netherlands died on 23 November 1890, and, although his daughter Wilhelmina became queen instantly at age 10, her mother, Emma, was named regent. Wilhelmina was enthroned on 6 September 1898. She reigned a total of 58 years.
Silver coins with the young portrait of Queen Wilhelmina start to pick up significant collector value, but only for coins in good condition, like the one in our picture.
Here are some typical catalog values.
10 CENTS (0.0288 troy ounces silver)
worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $30
well preserved: $100
fully uncirculated: $150
10 cent coins dated 1895 are somewhat more rare, double these values
10 cent coins dated 1897 are somewhat more common, half these values
25 CENTS (0.0736 troy ounces silver)
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $200
fully uncirculated: $450
25 cent coins dated 1895 are somewhat more rare, double these values
25 cent coins dated 1897 are somewhat more common, half these values
Remember that these are catalog values and must be adjusted to obtain actual buy and sell values. See our Important Terminology page for further information.

Requester description: 1894 Obverse: Profile of young girl facing right; Inscription on circumference: WILHELMINA KONINGIN DER NEDERLANDEN. Reverse: Laurel (?) wreath along circumference with 3 lines of text inside: 10 / CENTS / 1894. I found on your site what seems nearly the same coin except the portrait is of older woman and the series dates 1901-45. Is this earlier coin with the younger queen different in any meaningful way or more valuable? Thanks. --jl
