Dutch West Indies Silver! 

A fascinating relic of a time when the Netherlands was a major global power, the 1794 Quarter Gulden was issued for use in the Dutch West Indies. 
Battling with the Spanish and Portuguese, the Dutch gained a foothold in the Caribbean during the 17th century through the Dutch West Indies Company. As in the East Indies, Dutch coins were struck for the West Indies – each with a ‘W’ on the obverse. 
Struck for one of the Netherlands’ colonies and circulating in one of Britain’s, the Dutch West Indies Quarter Gulden inevitably found its way to Australian shores.
