Indonesia (Dutch East Indies) Cent  1936 to 1945
Indonesia (Dutch East Indies) Cent 1936 to 1945

Known as Indonesia today, the Dutch were in control of the Netherlands East Indies until 1942. Several different types of coins were minted bearing a NEDERLANDSCH INDIE inscription along with predominantly Muslim designs and writing.

These are exotic coins in the West, but are basically modern issues that carry small collector premiums. Most of the coins were minted at the Philadelphia, PA (USA) mint.

Mitch's one cent coin with the hole is worth about 10 US cents in worn condition, rising to $3 to $5 US dollars in fully uncirculated condition.

Coin: 7810 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
