¼ Gulden, Netherlands East Indies (1941)

A couple days ago I shared one of my silver coins, a ⅒ Gulden from the Netherlands East Indies, figured to share today something from the same place and era, a ¼ Gulden from 1941.

But first a quick reminder on the Netherlands East Indies:

The Dutch East Indies, also known as the Netherlands East-Indies was a Dutch colony consisting of what is now Indonesia. It was formed from the nationalised trading posts of the Dutch East India Company, which came under the administration of the Dutch government in 1800 [source](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_East_Indies]

First a couple photos:

As you can see below, the ¼ Gulden has exactly the same design with the ⅒ Gulden, the only difference is essentially the size:

Feel free to click here to check my previous post for more info on the weird letters!

When it comes to composition, this sweet baby is 3.18 g of 0.720 silver and 0.280 copper, so a total of 2.226 grams of silver.

And a final size comparison with a standard euro coin:

For now, these are the only coins I own from the Netherlands East Indies, but I have more from other dutch colonies. I have already posted some and there are more to come soon!

Stack on!

And I was looking forward to seeing the 1/2 and 1 Gulden to finish this set. Perhaps someday in the future we will see this set filled out.

Beautiful coin, mostly made of silver. The strange thing is the first writing, I thought it was an Arabic piece

I'm going to look into it I joined some Facebook groups and stuff but I don't really trust it I really want to get a tool to check metals but it's around 20k cad and that's fairly steep but I think I'm going to get it eventually it's going to be so beautiful I will be able to conduct business with peace

Hey just curious, how did you collect all these interesting coins? When I was young, I did try to collect some coins. But realise they are more of coins from currencies around the world rather than rare coins, meaning that i only have coins of places that I’ve been to or my relatives have been to. Any idea where I can go around and collect more of such vintage?
