I guess these Duits might be cataloged by Krause in their 1701-1800 catalog. I don't know coz I don't have own one.

If anyone have it , I too would appreciate valuation of the 1790 VOC Duit in VF and EF grades.

1734 what?

 

I assume duit, but there are many different types. For this date at least three: Zeeland, Holland and Friesland. They are documented in various books.

 

Here's a bibliography for the Indies:

Scholten is the most accessible guide.

 

Basically the duits are generally worth between $1 and $10, depending on date, in worn conditions. If you have a true mint state it example it could sell for $50-$100.

 

The silver and gold proofs are worth more. And some VOC coins (not duits) are worth tens of thousands of dollars.

 

Here are some duit threads:

The May issue of World Coin News has an interesting article titled, Story of 1646 Batavia crown an adventure by Mario Sacripante. The article mentions a book, Coins of the Dutch Overseas Territories by Scholten.

The VOC (Dutch East India Company) coins were produced for circulation in the Dutch colonies in Asia (currently Indonesia and Sri Lanka). They were also legal tender in South Africa together with European Dutch coins between 1652 and 1797.
