    Acording to the Krause catalog you have a Netherland 1-cent coin. There were 10,800,000 minted. It is valued at $1 in Fine condition, $3 in extra fine condition, and $12 in uncirculated.

    True for older coins, yes. But the designs changed quite dramatically in the early 1980s, when Beatrix became queen ...

    I would not quite put it that way; "her" coins sure have a much more modern and maybe sober look, but I actually find both the older and the newer ones interesting. Then again different people have different tastes - would be boring (and probably expensive ;) ) if we all liked the same coins ...

    WOW!!! That 1793 coin is certainly impressive. It appears as though the lady, standing, facing, is holding a lance, right, rather than the usually seen scepter [long staff]. Also, the lance is topped with a brimmed hat instead of a phrygian or pileus [freedom] cap. Does anyone know who she is [Dutch Liberty?] and the symbolism involved?

    On a less than serious note, it is good to learn that some of you more-alive, red-blooded CoinTalkers have your priorities arranged correctly. Even at my advanced age, I wouldn't mind having a blue-eyed, naturally blond, "two-lip' beauty clopping around in wooden shoes. [LOL]. Let's hear it for the "Van's" and the 'Van Der's".

    All kidding aside, to see one of the more striking Dutch coins just Google: Lion Dollar.
    It is understood that the material used for this excellent coin was thinner than it should have been, therefore, one has to search for a coin that was struck having full details. These coins circulated in Dutch Colonial America and continued to remained a popular unit for exchange after the British forced the Dutch out of New Amsterdam. Dutch settlers moved up the Hudson River and founded Albany.

    This handsome coin rightfully belongs in any collection that caters to our Colonial American period.

    Many contend that the Dutch "daadler" [lion dollar] was Americanized to become our dollar. Others insist that "thaler" became our dollar. One seems more obvious than the other. It's your choice ..... you decide.
