Another great Coin!!

By  Coltbreath

Once again after long deliberation I found this little Rooster coming home. The coin is a solid AU or better!! ( Thank you Again the good people who pick these awesome coins) The date is 1914. I prefer Netherlands 10 Guilders for fractional bullion, but these coins offer are a great alternative and are just as stunning.

Beautiful Historic Coin

By  Old Corps Marine

from DFW TX Metro Area

5.0

I have been looking at these for sometime. They do not dissapoint. My three coins were dated 1905, 1910 and 1914. I am very pleased to get one of the last year minted as it is also the starting year of the Great War (WWI). As a previous reviewer quipped I wonder where the 1914 coin was, if it was already minted, when the Germans invaded Belgium in 1914. Perhaps on a table of a Paris sidewald cafe. In any case they are certainly AU and could grade out BU. I will never know as I will not have them looked at but will keep them solely for my Grandchildren.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Mint Condition

Nice Coin

By  Buffman

from NC

It is the first Rooster that I have purchased. It is very nice, great color and detail. About the size of a nickel, so a nice sized coin. I will probably pick up more of these. I love Apmex for their products, prices, and delivery.

Nice Coin

By  ACM

from Denver, CO

4.0

Don't get me wrong, a very nice coin but I would definitely recommend the Swiss Franc; far and away better condition and luster. The rooster I received was in marginal condition, however it is still a must for those interested in the European denominations. I would not purchase this coin again but I would not retract the first one I purchased.

Pros

  • Attractive Design

Cons

  • Poor Condition
