Commemorative coins are designed as aesthetically pleasing miniature works of art with great historical significance. Commemorative coins have been designed and minted in-house by the Royal Dutch Mint for many years. Initially, they were designed to mark important moments such as the coronation of a new monarch or a new royal portrait, but increasingly also to mark historic events or individuals in iconic style. A commemorative coin is far more than merely the result of a high-quality design and production process; coins embody an important cultural and historical value, as well as an emotional one.
Coins have also been valued as desirable collectors objects for many years. The Royal Dutch Mint has also acquired an international reputation in this area as a result of its activities in purchasing and selling old coins and medals, related services, and its close cooperation with larger trade partners.
