Netherlands 10 and 25 Cents  1817 to 1830
Netherlands 10 and 25 Cents 1817 to 1830

These old silver coins from the Netherlands are hard to find. If you have a specimen that is in good shape, with no stains, spots, scratches, cleanings, gouges, nicks, or similar damage, you have a valuable coin. The value of even worn specimens is not too shabby. Lack of damage and good eye appeal are the most important attributes.

The coin in our picture is a nice example from PMO Direct in IJsselstein, The Netherlands. It is in beautiful condition and PMO has it on sale for 180 euros, about $250 US dollars, a good price for such a nice coin. CoinQuest thanks PMO direct for use of their coin image.

The catalogs list these coins as shown below. Remember that catalog values are only approximate and must be adjusted according to the concepts on our Important Terminology page.

10 CENTS, 0.031 troy ounces silver
worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $35
well preserved: $75
fully uncirculated: $130
10 cent coins dated before 1825 are very rare, worth $400 in average circulated condition

25 CENTS, 0.077 troy ounces silver
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $40
well preserved: $90
fully uncirculated: $180
25 cent coins with the following dates are worth much more than the values above, about 10 times as much: 1817, 1818, 1828

If you have one of these coins in good condition, it would probably be worthwhile to show it to a knowledgable collector or coin dealer. There are subtle variations and patterns that are worth more than the 'normal' coins shown here. These variations are beyond the scope of our CoinQuest forum. Only an in-person, actual inspection of this coin will reveal reliable value estimates.
