Paris, London, Milan, New York… Many luxury brands are only too happy to use the names of trendy world cities to give their perfumes, fashion clothing or other creations the necessary shine and glamour. But when it comes to diamonds and their processing, Antwerp is at the absolute top in the world.
 
Antwerp City of Diamonds
From the 16th century, Indian diamonds were brought directly to Antwerp and the local polishers acquired an unsurpassed fame. But the true success story of Antwerp City of Diamonds starts in the 19th century, when new fields are developed in South Africa and many Jewish diamond workers from Eastern Europe settled in the Sinjoren City. Since then, the diamond industry has linked its economic fate to Antwerp forever and those sparkling stones from us are praised worldwide for their excellent quality and their exceptional perfection.
 
No Diamond... Without Gold!
To promote the worldwide prestige of Antwerp City of Diamonds, the Royal Mint of Belgium now issues a beautiful 12½ euro coin, struck in the purest gold and in the highest Proof quality. The obverse shows the side and top of a brilliant cut diamond with date and English inscription. The reverse shows the Belgian Lion customary for this issue, the face value and the trilingual country designation. A luxurious case and a Certificate of Authenticity complete this subtle numismatic gem.
