Medieval Netherlands Floris Culemborg 1, 2, and 4 Pfennig  1537 to 1598
Medieval Netherlands Floris Culemborg 1, 2, and 4 Pfennig 1537 to 1598

There is not a ton of information available on old Dutch coins like this one. A super web site about them appears at duiten.nl. The 2 pfennig (duit, P II at top of side with square) in our image comes from Münzen und Medaillen Deutschland in Weil am Rhein, Germany. It sold for 200 euros (about $270 US dollars) during a 2010 auction. CoinQuest thanks Münzen und Medaillen for use of their coin photo.

Generally for these coins the denomination (P I, II, IIII) does not play a big part in value. The overwhelming factors are condition, or state of preservation, and eye appeal. Most of these coins today are worn to a frazzle or damaged in some way, such as holes, cleanings, scratches, bends, or stains. This lowers value substantially. Very general guidance for undamaged coins is:

1, 2, 4 PFENNIG
worn: $25 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $300

To interpret catalog values, please refer to our Important Terminology page.
