Before the Euro was introduced, the Netherlands used a two-and-a-half-gallen coin as their official currency. In 1840, they introduced the two-and-a-half guilder coin, which remained in circulation until the euro was adopted in 2002. The two-and-a-half-gulden coin is distinguished by the portrait of Queen Juliana on its front, as well as the coat of arms of the Netherlands on its back.

After the introduction of the euro, the Netherlands Bank removed its old coins from circulation. In 1948, they were replaced by new bronze coins and banknotes. In the early 1960s, the two-and-a-half-g-gallerie coin was reintroduced as a one-half guilder coin. However, in the late 1980s, it was replaced by the new 500-gallerie note.
