Netherlands Antilles new date (01.06.2012) notes confirmed

10, 25, 50, and 100 gulden notes (BNA B25, B27, and B28, respectively) have been confirmed dated 1 juni 2012 with the same signature combination as the preceding issues (Jerrald M. Hasselmeyer and Emsley D. Tromp). These notes are rather unusual in that they bear the issuer name as the Bank van de Nederlandse Antillen, even though the Netherlands Antilles was dissolved as a unified political entity on 10 October 2010, and the old bank became the Centrale Bank van Curaçao en St Maarten which had plans to introduce a new common currency, the Curaçao St Maarten guilder (CMG) in 2012.

Netherlands Antilles dissolved; new notes to be issued 2012

The Netherlands Antilles was dissolved as a unified political entity on 10 October 2010, and the five constituent islands attained new constitutional statuses within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Bonaire, Saba, and Sint Eustatius became special municipalities within the Netherlands and will adopt the US dollar on 1 January 2011. Curaçao and Sint Maarten became two new independent states within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, similar to Aruba. The old Bank van de Nederlandse Antillen became the Centrale Bank van Curaçao en St Maarten which plans to introduce a new common currency, the Curaçao St Maarten gulden (CMG) in 2012 at par with the Netherlands Antilles gulden, although the Antillean guilder will be maintained as legal tender for a transitional period.

New currency following dissolution of Netherlands Antilles?

The Netherlands Antilles are scheduled to be dissolved as a unified political entity on 10 October 2010, and the five constituent islands will attain new constitutional statuses within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Bonaire, Saba, and Sint Eustatius are to become a direct part of the Netherlands as special municipalities. These islands will adopt the US dollar in 2011. Curaçao and Sint Maarten will become two new independent states within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, similar to Aruba. These two islands plan to form a monetary union and introduce a new common currency, although the Antillean guilder will likely be maintained as legal tender for a transitional period.
