coin spoons netherlands silver

These two hand made coin spoons appear to be World War 2 memorabilia

The top spoon features a 1939 --25 cent silver Netherlands coin
in the bowl we find a 1931 1 Guilder coin

The bottom spoon features a cutout of a 1941 25 cent silver Netherlands coin and
in the bowl we find a 1 Guilder coin (the date is missing because of the solder at that point)
There is also a crowned W in the stem which I suspect stands for Queen Wilhelmina.

This is the smallest spoon I own measuring a tiny 2" (51mm)
The bowl is a 1938 10 cent silver coin.
The finial is a cutout bust from a 1941 10 cent silver coin.
This is a really cute little piece.

2 1/2 guilder coin spoon

This is a very large 2 1/2 Guilder coin bowl dated 1932

I thought that the cutout heart shape of the finial was quite attractive. The right picture is the bowl reverse.

The top spoon features a one guilder bowl dated 1931 and a 25 cent finial dated 1941
The bottom spoon features a 1/2 guilder bowl with an unreadable date and a ten cent coin dated 1939
There are no markings but I suspect the stems are 800 silver

From Wikipedia:
Wilhelmina (Wilhelmina Helena Pauline Maria; 31 August 1880 – 28 November 1962) was queen regnant of the Kingdom of the Netherlands from 1890 to 1948. She ruled the Netherlands for fifty-eight years, longer than any other Dutch monarch. Her reign saw World War I and World War II, the economic crisis of 1933, and the decline of the Netherlands as a major colonial empire. Outside the Netherlands she is primarily remembered for her role in World War II, in which she proved to be a great inspiration to the Dutch resistance.[1]
