Netherlands Antilles,

Some older coins,
1) Gulden 1900 - Kolonie Curacao - these circulated alongside the Dutch coins of the time.
2) Gulden 1944 - Munt Van Curacao, struck by the US mint at Denver - the occupation of the Netherlands caused the link with Dutch coins to be broken, so a new currency was needed, this time pegged to the US$.
3) Gulden 1956 - Netherlandse Antillen
4) 25 Cents 1984 - Netherlandse Antillen

The 10 cents, and 1 Gulden were struck in silver until 1970.

Netherlands Antilles, a modern set.

1) 1 Cent 2001
2) 5 cents 1997
3) 10 Cents 1994
4) 25 Cents 1992
5) 50 Cents 1990
6) 1 Gulden 1991
7) 2 Gulden 1992

Next year will bring some interesting changes to this set, as the Netherlands Antilles will cease to exist.

Trinidad & Tobago,

Another set to have remained relatively unchanged since it's introduction (in 1966)
A special set for the 10th Anniversary was issued in 1972, of which only the 1 and 50 Cent circulated.
A dollar was issued in 1969 and 1979 but these I believe non-circulating.
The latest designs were introduced in 1974.

1) 1 Cent - Hummingbird feeding from a balisier plant.
2) 5 Cents - Bird of Paradise
3) 10 Cents - Flaming Hibiscus
4) 25 Cents - Chaconia
5) 50 Cents - Drum
