Netherland Two Steivers

Before the adoption of the Euro, The Netherlands had a monetary system based on Guilder. Prior the decimalization of the Guilders were divided into number of other denominations. One Guilder was equal to 20 stuivers. After decimalization a stuiver became the informal name of the 5 cent coins. A stuiver was worth 16 penning or 8 duit.
Although the guilder was the cornerstone of the monetary system, there were competing coinage that were normalized to Guilders. The florijn was 28 stuivers. The daaler was 1½ guilders. The rijksdaalder and silver ducat was 2½ guilders. The silver rider ducaton was 3 guidlers.

Several mints from around the world make exciting coin designs in circulating alloys, silver and gold. Among my favorites are the Perth Mint in Austrailia which produces a variety of coins for nations mostly through out the Pacific Rim. The Neatherlands has also produced some interesting designs, and several private US based mints have produced foreign currency on contract, include the Franklin Mint which has produced many Israeli Coins.
Our interest in foreign coins has been nominal but rapidly growing as it seems that US designs are so stuck in the mud. Also, foreign mints are creating bold new designs with color and bimetal designs that are both eye catching and fun.
