Curacao (Netherlands Antilles) 1 Cent and 2 1/2 Cents  1942 to 1948
Curacao (Netherlands Antilles) 1 Cent and 2 1/2 Cents 1942 to 1948

That's a neat coin! Curacao minted both 1 cent and 2 1/2 cent denominations between 1942 and 1948. Curacao is the largest island of the Netherlands Antilles (off the coast of Venezuela), and the inscriptions reflect that fact on coins dated 1942:

1942 1 cent: KONINGRIJK DER NEDERLANDEN
All other 1 and 2 1/2 cent coins: MUNT VAN CURACAO

For all dates, denominatoins, and inscriptions, catalog values run like this:

1 CENT AND 2 1/2 CENTS:
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $6
fully uncirculated: $15
1 cent coins dated 1944 are quite common and catalog at one-half these values

Be sure to read our Important Terminology page for an explanation of catalog values.
