Detailed product description
The 10 Dutch guilders - Golden guilder is a historic Dutch coin minted in 21,6 carats gold with a pure gold content of 6,05 grams. The 10 Dutch guilders - Golden guilder is a popular currency in both numismats and investors and is an affordable classic on the collecting market.
 

10 Dutch guilders - Golden guilder

The golden 10 guilders coin was first introduced in 1808 by Louis Napoleon during French rule in the Netherlands. The first 10 guilders were slightly heavier than the later issues, and were purified by higher purity: 6,83 grams with a pure gold content of 6,25 grams (22 carats).  
 
After French rule, King Willem I came to power and thus the Dutch 10 guilders received his final form in 1818. Golden 10 guilders would weigh 6,73 grams from a pure gold content of 6,05 grams (21,6 carats) and were produced untill 1933 under the ruling periods of three kings and one queen: Willem I, Willem II, Willem III and Wilhelmina. Until 1830 some variants were still minted in Brussels. From the independence of Belgium, the 10 guilders were struck near Utrecht.
 
At Argentor you can mainly buy 10 guilders from King Willem III and Queen Wilhelmina.

Design of the 10 Dutch guilders -  Golden guilder

Some different versions have been struck from the golden 10 guilders coin. Since Argentor sells mostly coins of King William III and Queen Wilhelmina, we only discuss the design of those two coins below.
 
Willem III | 1875
Willem III The first golden 10 guilders of King William III have a slightly different design than the coins that have been struck later in his reign. On the front you see the portrait of King William III, with the initials of the designer J.P.Menger engraved in his neck. Around his head is at the top is the slogan “God zij met ons” and at the bottom of the name ‘Koning Willem de derde’.
 
On the back you can see the Netherlands' coat of arms, between the nominal value of the currency, and above the year of issue. Around the coin, outward and clockwise in ‘Koninkrijk der Nederlanden’ is written. Left and right at the bottom, along the coat of arms you will also see the coin master and coin sign, an axe and the Mercury pole. The axe refers to coin master P.H. Taddel and the Mercury bar, also known as Caduceus, is the coin sign of the Dutch Mint in Utrecht.
 
Willem III | 1876 - 1889
From 1876 some adjustments were made to the design of the Willem III Golden Tenner. The front of the coin still looked the same as a year before; Only the two stars between the slogan “God zij met ons” and the name ‘Koning Willem de derde’ were made slightly bigger.
 
On the backside, the reading direction of ‘Koninkrijk der Nederlanden’ was adjusted from right to left and the text was directed inwards. As a result, the year of issue was relocated at the bottom of the coin underneath the coat of arms between the coin master and the coin sign.
