It wasnt until 1818 that gold guilders were issued by the kingdom.

Description

The coins may feature a different reigning monarch on the coins obverse based upon the ruler holding the title of King or Queen of the Netherlands. The coins are issued in grades ranging from XF-BU based on our inventory at the time of purchase. The most common design is that of Queen Wilhelmina whose reign of 58 years as Queen of the Netherlands was the longest of any Dutch monarch.

On the obverse of these 10 Guilders Gold Coins you’ll find a bust of the ruling monarch. As mentioned, the most common specimens available today have one of the four portraits of Queen Wilhelmina issued during her reign from 1890 to 1948. It is, however, possible that the images of three other monarchs could feature on the obverse.

Among those possible busts are Wilhelminas predecessors. Her father King William III ruled from 1849 until his own death in 1890. Her grandfather King William II ruled briefly from 1840 until 1849, and her great-grandfather King William I ruled from 1815 until 1840. William I was the first King of the Netherlands but had ruled previously as Prince of Nassau-Orange-Fulda from 1803 to 1806 and Prince of Orange-Nassau from 1806 to 1815 before the formation of the kingdom.

The reverse of all 10 Guilders Gold Coins features the crowned Royal Arms of the Kingdom of Netherlands. There is a face value engraving on either side of the crowned arms and the year of issue is listed on the bottom.
