1849-1890 - Willem III - Silver 10 Cents (Dubbeltje)

A dubbeltje is a small former Dutch coin, originally made of silver, with a value of a tenth of a Dutch guilder.


The name "dubbeltje" is the diminutive form of the Dutch word "dubbel" (Dutch for "double") because it was worth two stuivers. When the decimal system came to the Netherlands (about 1800) the 10 cent coin was named a "dubbeltje". Before the euro came the dubbeltje was the world's smallest coin in use; it weighed 1.5 grams. Formerly in the Netherlands the silver stuiver (0.685 gram) and the halfje (1.25 gram) were smaller.
