The new currency will be the Caribische gulden (Caribbean guilder). The abbreviation will be CMg.

No, the Caribbean guilder will consist of the 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 cent coins, and the 1 guilder and 5 guilder coins. The bank notes will consist of the 10, 20, 50, 100, and 200 notes.

That means that the 2 ½ guilder coin will not come back in the new series. The same is true for the 25 guilder bank note. New in this series will be the 20 and 200 guilder bank notes.

Yes, the Caribbean guilder will be pegged to the US Dollar (US$ 1 = CMg 1.79).

The Antillean guilder will be taken out of circulation three months after the introduction of the Caribbean guilder. Antillean guilders can be exchanged for Caribbean guilders during a period of 30 years starting on the day that the Caribbean guilder is introduced (NAf. 1 = CMg 1).
