This is a "fantasy" coin probably struck in the 1960's. Originals are always struck on 100% zinc planchets. In zinc they weigh about 3.7 gm but this one is 5.11 gm. I checked to see if this one was part of the issues struck by the USA but the USA did not strike 5 cent coins for the Netherlands and did not strike any of their coins until 1943 (unacknowledged by the US Mint until 1944). There are no privy marks or mint marks on this coin. Diameter and thickness also vary from the standard zinc coin.
