Description

The 75 Years of Liberation Set contains a unique Silver replica in the highest quality Proof and five original historic Silver coins from the Netherlands at the time of the Second World War or in remembrance of it. Occupation and liberation are brought together in this special set in which you find historic coins and commemorative coins from the guilder- and the euro age and also depicts the portraits of queens Wilhelmina, Juliana and Beatrix. This set creates a very special numismatic tribute to freedom throughout the years and should not be missed in your collection!

Resistance in Silver
The coin “Wilhelmina in Londen” is a replica of an unofficial guilder coin that was adapted during the resistance. On the adaptation Wilhelmina wore a helmet and the existing inscription “WILHELMINA KONINGIN DER NEDERLANDEN” was partly scratched off and edited so it read “WILHELMINA …………..IN …. …………...LONDEN”. To compare you will also find an original 1 guilder from 1940 in the set.
