Like many other gold coins for sale from various years of issue, the designs on the obverse of the coin can vary significantly. The most common obverse designs on the 10 Guilders Gold Coin is the portrait of Queen Wilhelmina. She was Queen of the Netherlands from 1890 until 1948 when she abdicated to her daughter Juliana.
With a reign that lasted for 58 years, Queen Wilhelmina was the longest-reigning Dutch monarch. Her reign included World War I and World War II, the latter of which forced her to rule in exile in Canada. The Dutch economic crises of 1933 led to the final year of issue for gold guilders, including the 10 Guilders Gold Coin.
