This specimen was lot 8041 in Ponterio sale 152 (New York, January 2010), where it sold for $1,017.75. The catalog description noted, "NETHERLANDS. 3 Gulden, 1824. Toned. NGC VF-35." This type was struck 1817-32; the 1824 is a common date of a scarce type. The portrait is of William I, first king of the independent kingdom of the Netherlands. Previous kings included Louis Napoleon (1806-10), puppet of Napoleon, and Napoleon himself (1810-14). When the kingdom of the Netherlands was reconstituted in 1815 under the prince of Orange, the coinage was reformed with the gulden as the base unit. In 1840 the three gulden was dropped and the 2½ gulden adopted.
