This coin was minted by the Denver Mint during World War II for circulation in the Dutch Colony of Curaçao.

The portrait of Queen Wilhelmina used on the Dutch coinage changed as the Queen aged. At the time these coins were struck, the Queen was 64 years old and was living in exile in England. The third style of her left facing portrait which dominates the obverse of this coin, was first used in 1921 when she was just 41 years old.

This particular coin is a nice example of this relatively common coin.
