Sell gold tenner (Gouden Tientje)
The most famous gold coins in the Netherlands are the golden tenner (Gouden Tientje) and the golden dukaat. In many families, the golden tenner was a gift given at the birth of a child, for example. This way, a gift of stable value could be given from which the newborn could benefit in later life. Many people who sell their gold tenner, once received it in such a way. A gold tenner always has the same weight, which is 6.72 grams. This gold coin is 21.6 carats, which means a golden tenner (gouden tientje) contains a content of 6.05 grams of pure gold.
The golden tenner has many different vintages. In most years, large amounts of gold tenners were produced. The value when selling gold tenner coins from these years is equal to the gold value. However, there are also gold tenners with collector's value, because they are rarer. These are, for example, some coins from the category golden tenner Willem three (Willem III, Willem the Third) or the category golden tenner Wilhelmina long hair. There are versions of Wilhelmina golden tenners with short and long hair, and among the versions with long hair there are a number of vintages that are worth more.
During gold tenner purchase at the Goudwaag, we can tell you exactly which vintages simply yield a nice amount of gold value and which vintages are worth more than the material value. In short: for selling gold tenners with confidence we look forward to seeing you at De Goudwaag.

Besides the gold tenner, the gold ducat is also a well-known and popular Dutch coin. Gold ducats are also often used to give as gifts for births, for example. A gold ducat weighs less than a gold tenner, weighing 3.49 grams. The carat of a gold ducat is 23.6, meaning that a gold ducat consists of 98.3% of pure gold, which means that the pure gold content in a ducat is 3.43 grams of gold. For gold ducat buying, De Goudwaag is happy to assist you. We will determine the value of your gold ducats and give you a nice amount for it.
