Multiple Paralympic snowboarding champion Bibian Mentel (September 27, 1972 - March 29, 2021) passed away a year ago. With her optimism, vitality and commitment to people with a physical challenge, Bibian has shown the Netherlands that life is too beautiful not to celebrate, regardless of the challenges that come your way. In memory of this exceptional athlete, the Royal Dutch Mint is launching a special issue, very limited available in Gold. These issues follow the issues in honour of, among others, the ALS Foundation, the Princess Máxima Centre, Make-A-Wish Nederland and the Dutch Cancer Society. For each sold Golden issue € 2,000.-  will be donated to the Mentelity Foundation.
 
The Mentelity Foundation
Bibian's dream was equal opportunities for everyone with a physical challenge. The Mentelity Foundation is committed to making Bibian's dream come true. The Foundation does this by inspiring and motivating people to get moving. It wants to show that people are capable of more than they think. Thus the Foundation not only changes people's lives, but also the way society looks at people with a physical challenge.
 
Pure Golden Issue
The obverse of the issue is an ode to Bibian herself. This side shows her portrait and is deliberately kept simple and classic. The reverse features the logo of the Mentelity Foundation, Bibian's passion project. The caption “IK HEB EEN DROOM Gelijke kansen voor iedereen met een lichamelijke uitdaging” (translation: I HAVE A DREAM Equal opportunities for anyone with a physical challenge) emphasizes the Foundation's purpose. The Golden issue is incorporated in the cover of a luxury coffee table book with photos and stories about Bibian's life. The issue comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
