ISO 4217 code for the Netherlands Antillean guilder. The currency traces its origins to the 18th century but took its current name in 1952. Throughout most of its history, it was pegged to the Dutch guilder; however, after the occupation of the Netherlands during the Second World War, it switched the peg to the U.S. dollar. It has maintained this peg at different values ever since. It is known colloquially as the florin.
