Netherlands 1 and 2 1/2 Gulden 1954 to 1980
That's Queen Juliana who has ruled the Netherlands since she was quite young. The 1 and 2 1/2 gulden denominations have been minted with the same pattern between 1954 and 1980. However, the composition changed from silver to nickel in 1967. Coins dated before and after 1967 carry significantly different values.
1 GULDEN BEFORE 1967 (0.151 troy ounces silver)
worn: BV + $0
average circulated: BV + $0
well preserved: BV + $1 US dollar
fully uncirculated: BV + $3
2 1/2 GULDEN BEFORE 1967 (0.347 troy ounces silver)
worn: BV + $0
average circulated: BV + $1 US dollar
well preserved: BV + $3
fully uncirculated: BV + $5
In the above listings, the BV stands for 'base value.' The BV of a silver coin is equal to its weight in silver multiplied by the current price of silver. At this writing, silver is selling around $20 US dollars per troy ounce. The price of silver changes every day, so look it up (e.g., kitco.com). Today's BV for a 1 gulden is 0.151 x 20 = $3 and BV for a 2 1/2 gulden is 0.347 x 20 = $7.
If your coin is dated after 1967, it is worth small amounts. These coins are made of nickel, not silver.
