Value of the Guilder / Euro

Comparing the purchasing power of the guilder from 1450 to any other year.

To determine the value of an amount of money in one year compared to another, enter the values in the appropriate places below.
For example, you may want to know:
How much money would you need today to have the same "purchasing power" of Fl 100 in year 1950.

You can make this computation among all the years between 1450 and the present.

1. How much money today has the same "purchasing power" as
  in the year ?   

If you are only interested in comparing the value of an amount of money in one past year in the prices of another year, you can use this sentence.

2. How much money in the year has the same "purchasing power" as   in the year ?   

Use a . between guilders/euros and cents:
e.g. fl 10.50 (not fl 10,50)
