From 1910 onwards a new portrait of Queen Wilhelmina appeared on the coins of 10 and 25 cents and 1/2 and 1 guilder. It was the first and would later turn out to be also the last ever uncouped effigy of a Dutch monarch on a standard circulating coin. The coin shows Queen Wilhelmina wearing an ermine trimmed mantle. At the same time also slight changes were made to the reverses of the coins. The portrait was never introduced on the 2,5 guilders coin as that coin was not being minted again until 1929, when the next portrait had already been introduced. The portrait was designed by Johannes Cornelis Wienecke.

After a lot of criticism from the public, in 1913 a new 5 cents coin was introduced which replaced its round counterpart that was introduced 6 years prior. The previous version of the 5 cents coin was in the dark often being passed off as a 25 cents coin making it an impopular coin amongst retailers and gaining it the nickname 'evening-quarter'. The new coin depicts an orange branche surrounded by a wave pattern on the obverse and pearls and shells on the reverse. It was designed by Johannes Cornelis Wienecke.

From 1922 onwards a new portrait of Queen Wilhelmina was gradually introduced on the coins of 10 and 25 cents and 0,5, 1 and 2,5 guilders. The new portrait was made by Johannes Cornelis Wienecke. On the 2,5 guilders coin a small flower is depicted under the portrait. The change of portrait was used to also make slight modifications to the reverse of the 0,5, 1 and 2,5 guilder coins.
