Netherlands Antilles 1954 1/10 gulden
The Netherlands Antilles comprise the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao off the coast of Venezuela and St. Eustatius and St. Maarten in the Leeward Islands. Coinage was issued for Curaçao during World War Two, while the island was occupied by American troops, but nothing was issued for the island group as a whole until 1952. This type was struck 1954-66 and 1970 and is fairly common. This is the scarcest date.
