Each of the 10 Guilders Gold Coins in this product listing are available to purchase inside of a protective plastic packaging. Though 10 Guilders Gold Coins were struck by the Royal Dutch Mint from 1818 until 1933, the coins in this listing are available with date marks from 1818 to 1889 only as they feature the effigy of ruling kings.
The Kingdom of Netherlands was formed officially in 1815 by Willem Frederik, the Prince of Orange-Nassau. Willem I had previously been the ruler of the Principality of Nassau-Orange-Fulda from 1803 to 1806. In 1813, he proclaimed himself the sovereign prince of a United Netherlands. By 1815, he crowned himself King of the Netherlands.
All 10 Guilders Gold Coins in this listing feature the effigy of Willem I on the obverse side with corresponding date marks of 1818 until 1840. In October 1840, Willem I abdicated the throne of the Kingdom of Netherlands and the crown passed to his son, Willem II. 10 Guilders Gold Coins available in this listing with the image of Willem II on the obverse have date marks ranging from 1841 to 1849 when Willem II died.
Upon his death, his son Willem III rose to power. Willem II would enjoy the longest reign of any King of the Netherlands, ruling over the kingdom from his fathers death in 1849 until his own death in 1890. His 41-year reign was eclipsed only by that of his daughter, Queen Wilhelmina who ruled through the end of the 19th century and guided the nation through two World Wars.
The reverse of all 10 Guilders Gold Coins features the crowned shield of the Kingdom of Netherlands. The crowned shield has the rampant lion of Netherlands on a heraldic shield with a crown atop it.
