Buy Dutch silver coins

Dutch silver coinage comes in various forms. The most well-known are, of course, the guilder and the euro, but our country has a rich history when it comes to coinage. One of the most beloved coins, which we no longer use, is the rijksdaalder. Since 2002, we have been using euros in the Netherlands. Until then, the guilder was the official currency.
Over the years, many Dutch coins have been issued, including some unique series. Among the more unique Dutch coins are the silver rijksdaalder, the silver ten-guilder coin, and the gold ten-guilder coin. In addition to standard Dutch coinage, we also have several special commemorative coins issued in honor of important people or events. At The Silver Mountain, you will also find Dutch coinage, primarily in the form of silver coins.

Weight and content of Dutch coins

Dutch silver coins vary in weight and silver content depending on the year of issue and type of coin. Nineteenth and twentieth-century Dutch guilders typically contain 72% silver, while certain commemorative coins often contain over 90% (sterling) silver.
The Dutch silver rijksdaalder is one of the most cherished Dutch silver coins. Rijksdaalders minted before 1943 are composed of 72% silver and weigh 25 grams gross. Rijksdaalders minted from 1959 to 1966 also have a silver content of 72%, but weigh only 15 grams gross. Another notable coin is the silver tientje, a commemorative coin issued between 1970 and 2001. Coins from 1970 to 1973 contain 72% silver and weigh 25 grams gross, while those minted after 1994 are made of 80% silver and weigh 15 grams gross. The value of Dutch silver coinage is heavily influenced by its silver content.
Accordingly, we sell Dutch silver coinage in bags based on the net weight of silver. All these coins are minted with a 72% silver content, and depending on market conditions, customers can purchase bags weighing one kilogram, two kilograms, or five kilograms of Dutch coinage.
For your reference, the gross weight of a one-kilogram bag of Dutch coinage is 1,390 grams, which equates to one kilogram of pure silver (1,390 x 0.72 (72%) = 1,000 grams).
