Curacao 1/10 and 1/4 Gulden  1944 to 1948
Curacao 1/10 and 1/4 Gulden 1944 to 1948

The small Caribbean island of Curacao is actually a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and Wilhelmina minted several different coins for use in Curacao during the mid 1900s. The 1/10 and 1/4 gulden look different than most of the Curacaon coins because the side without the Queen is very plain. Other denominations have more elaborate designs. This page applies to the plain-backed pieces, like the one in the picture.

These are silver coins and they command decent collector value when in good condition. Here are some typical catalog values.

1/10th GULDEN (0.029 troy ounces silver)
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $3

1/4th GULDEN (0.074 troy ounces silver)
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $4
well preserved: $12
fully uncirculated: $28
