    Nederl Indie coin

    I have recently found a Nederl Indie 1942 coin. It is 1/10 G and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it was made out of or if it is worth anything. Just curious.

    A picture or better yet, a scanned image would help a lot.

    Good luck!

    Coinbeginer, approximately 75,000,000 were made in 1942, so it isn't rare. As you probably already know, "condition" is hugely important in coin values. Your coin is only 72% silver, and at 15mm is about the size of a dime, so its silver value isn't much. The Netherlands East Indies was Dutch colonies in the Western Pacific ocean, such as Indonesia. More info about your coin (and current value info) is here: 1/10 Gulden - Wilhelmina - Netherlands East Indies - Numista

    Sidenote:
    In addition to the Netherlands East Indies, there is also the Netherlands West Indies, which is Dutch colonies in the Caribbean Sea -- such as the island of Sint Maarten.

    1942 was not a good year for the dutch east indies. The Dutch East Indies Campaign 1941-1942

    Japanese took the women an children to houses of questionable repute...
    killed the men.

    ...not entirely true....

    one of my old girlfriends mother was actually a prisoner along with her sisters and mother in a detention camp on Java (where she had been born and raised). Her parents had been wealthy Dutch plantation owners and after the Japanese invasion her father was sent to one camp and the women to another. She was 12 at the time and spent the next 3 plus years as a prisoner, barely fed, no medical attention but not raped. Oddly enough after the Japanese surrender, the Japanese guards stayed guarding the camp to prevent the native Indonesians from killing the Europeans.

    Funny thing too....her eventual husband was a native Indonesian, born on Sumatra but spent the war years in Holland in the underground. They were a fascinating couple with amazing stories. She was the best cook I ever met, having been trained by her Indonesian nannies to cook native dishes...it was almost like Thai food only even better.

    ...bout the coins...I too have several of various denominations, brought home by my own father who spent most of the war years stationed in New Guinea.
