A tiny piece of silver from a tiny country!

I am still on holidays, but as promised, I will continue to show off some of my silver pieces!

Today's coin is one of the smallest in my collection, a ⅒ Gulden minted in 1947. This little cutie comes from a little cute country I never heard before, called Curaçao.

Essentially an island in the Caribbean, near Cuba, with only about 150 k residents. It has some really cool history, if you are curious just click here to visit Wikipedia as I am in no mood to paraphrase it 😂

Ok let's see the coin!

Pretty basic stuff. On the front we have Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands and in Latin "WILHELMINA KONINGIN DER NEDERLANDEN" for "WILHELMINA QUEEN OF THE NETHERLANDS"

The back side features the value and date of the coin and reads "MUNT VAN CURAÇAO" for "MINT OF CURACAO".

As aforementioned, this is a tiny piece, just 1.3 g of 0.640 Silver and 0.360 copper. An interesting mix!

You need to stake more BEER (24 staked BEER allows you to call BEER one time per day)

This is probably one of the most modest coin you own. I think like it's simplicity, though the texts on it are a bit too epic lol.

Very interesting Wilkapedia article. Funny that a small coin comes from a small country and it contains copper. How long have you been collecting silver coins? Its interesting that this coin made it from the Carribean to Greece?

Hmmm, I think 9 months now. I buy a few coins every month slowly it adds up :)

Yes I love thinking about the stories and journeys all these old coins have to share !
