Suggested reading - Netherlands coins?


Recommended Posts

My brother didn't think I wanted my dad's coin books and catalogs, so he got rid of them. He felt so terrible about this later that I only gave him one :ninja:.


I'm interested in the history of Netherlands coins, particularly the Westfriesland ones minted in Enkhuizen and those of the Willems & Wilhelmina.


Jacques Schulman's Handboek van de Nederlandse Munten seems to be a standard, and for provincial coins I keep running into Zonnebloem. Would these be a good start?


I've learned a lot online, but I need books. :lol:

Describes the history of the money in The Netherlands, starting in the Napoleontic era (1795) up to "now" (where "now" is mid 1980's)




Both books are out of print , in Dutch and are no longer sold. However, they can be get rather easily at Dutch auction sites for a reasonable price.



They're not real catalogs, don't give all details of all coins from the era, but tell a lot about the history, with many pictures and intersting stories.
