Every year, since 2012, special commemorative coins have been issued celebrating Dutch World Heritage. The Kingdom of the Netherlands currently has ten UNESCO world heritage listings, of which the Royal Dutch Mint has immortalized seven of them on a commemorative coin. Now, it’s time for number eight: The Beemster 5 euro coin!
This coin tells the story of the historical polder in the North Holland province, where the Dutch drained lands and converted it to fertile agricultural land. This year marks the 20th anniversary of The Beemster as world heritage!

Are you living under water?
In addition to the world-famous and unique shapes of The Beemster, the protection of the land we won is central in this national campaign. When the land was drained, we naturally wanted to keep it that way! Are you actually living under water?
For this campaign, we made a video about The Beemster and what would happen if the dikes break in the Netherlands: Watch the video here.
Free sea level map with your order
With every Beemster order, we’re giving away a free sea level map of the Netherlands, so you can see for yourself how far under sea level you’re living and working.
