I believe the silver coin is from the Netherlands East Indies and was issued as a trade coin. 1/16th of a gulden.


The bottom coin is a duit from Zeeland in the Netherlands.


I'll guess that the silver one is worth about $30-$40 while is duit is worth about $20.

The seconde one was coined during the period of the Republic of the Seven United Provinces (1581 - 1795), under Statholder William V of Orange-Nassau.

In the period the seven Dutch territories had separated coinages.

On 1795 French troops occupied the territory and the Batavian Republic was born.
