Figuring out the Antilles Guilder
The Antilles guilder filled in as the currency of the Netherlands Antilles until its disintegration in 2010. The Netherlands Antilles was included Aruba, Bonaire, Cura\u00e7ao, Saba, Sint Eustatius and Sint Maarten, and existed as a single autonomous country inside the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Cura\u00e7ao and Sint Maarten have investigated supplanting the Netherlands Antilles guilder with another currency known as the Caribbean guilder (CMg), the value of which would be pegged at 1.79 to the U.S. dollar. In any case, the adoption of this currency has been delayed inferable from political dealings concerning the location and governance of a new central bank.
Accordingly, Centrale Bank van Curacao en Sint Maarten has stopped printing new banknotes in anticipation of the new currency roll out. Along these lines, the islands are currently expected to run out of physical coins and bills inside the next couple of years. Thusly, Cura\u00e7ao and Sint Maarten might have to embrace an alternative currency to function in parallel, like the USD or the euro.
