Prior to the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles on 10 October 2010, Curaçao was administered as the "Island Territory of Curaçao (Dutch: Eilandgebied Curaçao, Papiamentu: Teritorio Insular di Kòrsou), one of five island territories of the former Netherlands Antilles.
Together with Aruba and Bonaire, Curaçao forms a group referred to as the ABC islands. Collectively, Curaçao and the other Dutch islands in the Caribbean are often called the Netherlands Antilles or the "Dutch Caribbean".

Curaçao is a polyglot society. The official languages are Dutch, Papiamentu, and English. However, Dutch is the sole language for all administration and legal matters. Most of Curaçao's population is able to converse in at least two of the languages of Papiamentu (Portuguese creole), Dutch, English, and Spanish.

Curaçao is now one of the four constituent countries that form the Kingdom of the Netherlands, along with the Netherlands, Aruba and Sint Maarten. The citizens of these countries all share a single nationality. Hato International Airport is located on the island. Its main runway parallels, and is adjacent to, the northern coast. National Anthem: Himno di Kòrsou.

Currency: Netherlands Antillean Guilder (ANG) = 100 cents.
The Netherlands Antillean guilder (Dutch: gulden) is currently the currency of Curaçao and Sint Maarten. It was used  until 2010 in the Federation of the Netherlands Antilles along with Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius. It was also used by Aruba till 1985. Netherlands Antillean guilder is subdivided into 100 cents (Dutch plural form: centen). The guilder was replaced by the US dollar on 01 January 2011 on Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius. On Curaçao and Sint Maarten, the Netherlands Antillean guilder is planned to be replaced by the newly created Caribbean guilder. In Papiamentu, the local language of Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao, the guilder is called a "florin".
In the 18th century, the Dutch guilder circulated in the Netherlands Antilles. This was supplemented in 1794 by an issue of coins specific for the Dutch holdings in the West Indies. At this time, the guilder was subdivided into 20 stuiver.
Between 1799 and 1828, the reaal circulated on the islands, with 1 reaal = 6 stuiver or 3 1⁄3 reaal = 1 guilder. In 1794, silver coins were issued for use in the Dutch West Indies in denominations of 2 stuiver, 1⁄4, 1 and 3 guilders. The Dutch guilder was reintroduced in 1828, now subdivided into 100 cents. After the reintroduction of the Dutch guilder in 1828, some 1 guilder coins were cut into quarters and stamped with a "C" in 1838 to produced 1⁄4 guilder coins. When currency began once more to be issued specifically for use in the Netherlands Antilles, it was issued in the name of Curaçao, with the first banknotes and coins, denominated in the Dutch currency, introduced in 1892 and 1900, respectively. In 1900 and 1901, silver 1⁄10 and 1⁄4 guilder coins were introduced which circulated alongside Dutch coins.
In 1940, following the German occupation of the Netherlands, the link to the Dutch currency was broken, with a peg to the U.S. Dollar to 1.88585 Guilders. Following the German occupation of the Netherlands and the separation of the Netherlands Antillean currency from the Dutch, a bronze 1 cent coin was introduced in 1942, followed by a cupro-nickel 5-cent coin in 1943. Bronze 2 1⁄2 cent and silver 1 and 2 1⁄2 guilders were introduced in 1944. The coinage of 1941-44 was minted in the United States and carries "P" or "D" mintmarks, and for most denominations a small palm tree. This money was also intended for use in Suriname.
The name "Netherlands Antilles" (Nederlandse Antillen) was introduced in 1952 on coins. The peg was adjusted to 1.79 Guilders = 1 U.S. Dollar in 1971. In 1970, nickel replaced silver, although the 2 1⁄2 guilder coin was not reintroduced until 1978. Aluminium 1 and 2 1⁄2 cents were introduced in 1979. In 1989, aluminium 1 and 5 cents, nickel-bonded-steel 10 and 25 cents, and aureate-steel 50 cents, 1 and 2 1⁄2 guilders were introduced. Aureate-steel 5 guilder coins followed in 1998.
The alternate Dutch names for coins are: 1 cent coin is known as Sen, 2½ cent as Plaka, 5 cents as Locha (Stuiver), 10 cents as Dubbeltje (Depchi), 25 cents as Kwartje (Dies Plaka), 50 cents as Yotin (Groot Stuiver), 2½ Gulden as Fuerte (Rijksdaalder) and 5 Gulden as Antillean Daalder.

Maduro & Sons established Maduro's Bank, the island's first commercial bank. In 1932, Curiel's Bank, which had grown from the successful banking department of Morris E. Curiel & Sons, merged with Maduro's Bank to form MCB.
