Netherlands Antillian Guilder | ANG Currency | Cent
Netherlands Antillian Guilder:
Netherlands Antillian Guilder (Guilde) was the currency of five Netherland Antilles Islands. Currently only two islands Curacao and Sint Maarten, use the NL Antillean Guilder. On 1 January 2011, the guilder was replaced by the US dollar on Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius and remaining two islands use the Guilde. The Antillean guilder is a decimal system-based currency subdivided into 100 cents.
In the 18th century, The Netherlands Antilles used the Dutch Guilde. At that time the guilder was subdivided into 20 stuiver. Between 1799 and 1828, the reaal was used on the Netherland Antilles Islands, with 1 reaal = 6 stuiver or 3 1⁄3 reaal = 1 guilder. In 1828, the Dutch guilder was reintroduced and subdivided into 100 cents. The Netherlands was occupied by Germany in 1940, and the guilder was pegged to the United States Dollar at a rate of 1 Dollar = 1.8858 Guilders. In 1971, the peg between the US Dollar and the Guilder was adjusted to 1 Dollar = 1.79 Guilders. Aruba previously used Netherlands Antilles guilder but Aruba gained a status aparte and thereby left the Netherlands Antilles in 1986. After that Aruba began to issue its own currency, the Aruban florin, which replaced the Netherlands Antillean guilder at par. After the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles in 2011, Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius switched to the US dollar. First banknotes and coins, denominated in the Dutch currency, were introduced in 1892 and 1900, respectively and this currency was issued in the name of Curacao.
