1979 Netherlands Antilles 25 Cents

Have a Netherlands Antilles coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

The only Netherlands Antilles I own and I completely forgot where I got it. I know this is a Caribbean place, or at least it was once. I also know by 1985 this system is no longer in use but why I am not sure probably local independence.


Pretty average coin nothing jumps out design-wise.


On the obverse NEDERLANDSE ANTILLEN  LIBERTATE UNANIMUS 1979 which means NETHERLANDS ANTILLES FREEDOM OF THE MIND or UNIFIED BY FREEDOM (my Latin is not great) 1979. Two privy marks on either side of the shield.

The edge is reeded but no other security features.

The reverse has the six stars and 25 CENT not CENTS. Also some tropical leaves.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cent / Netherlands Antilles
Year: 1979
Mintage: 1,012,000
Metal: Nickel
Value: $0.15 in Very-Fine

Do you know why it is "cent" and not "cents" on Dutch coins and coins from Dutch colonies.

You better hang on to these coins! They're being replaced by the Caribbean Guilder pretty soon, maybe 2013 if they time it right. The rest of the Dutch Caribbean colonies now use the US Dollar. Going to be interesting as it will be something new to collect!

Not really, it could be a grammar thing. I know if singular it can be an adjective or modifier to a noun.

English is my native language but explain the rules is not my strong suit.

Good to know but I only have this one coin.

It seems as though I'm now getting new coins and bills all the time! Got these: http://img444.imageshack.us/slideshow/webplayer.php?id=coins003.jpg today. The Nazi Germany 10 reichspfennig is from 1941. I only say this because it kind of looked like a 1944 in the picture. Also, the Russian 20 Kopeks has some damage on the final 1 in 1961. Could you please tell me all of their values? Thanks!

Looking at your values above I am just wondering when you said 1941-A Germany 1 Reischpfennig about $0.20 you did mean 10 Reichspfennig, right?

Yes, but oddly enough they have the same value.
