Netherlands 1847 2-5 gulden rev DSLR.jpg

The specimen is the most common of a type struck at the Utrecht mint for the Netherlands 1841-49. Despite the large mintage, this type is priced substantially higher than the succeeding type of William III (KM 82, struck 1849-74). It superseded the three gulden of 1817-32. After the final issue of 1874, no 2½ gulden were issued until 1898. The .945 fine alloy seems to be unique to the Netherlands.

Recorded mintage: 8,958,675.

Specification: 25 g, .945 fine silver, .760 troy oz ASW, 38 mm diameter, edge lettered GOD * ZY * MET * ONS *.

Catalog reference: KM 69, Dav-235, Sch-514.
