Commemorative coins are a very interesting branch of Numismatics. Analysing the 2 Euro Commemorative coins of a particular country means finding out, first of all, the reasons why a particular coin was minted.

Each Commemorative features designs, inscriptions and dates that make it possible to understand the event, character or situation to which it was dedicated.

The very first coin we are going to analyse is not only important for the Netherlands but for the whole of Europe. It is the coin minted in 2007 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome. The coin features the same design and will be translated into as many languages as there are European countries in which it circulates.

On the obverse side of the 2-euro Holland 2007, we can see the open treaties signed by the six founding Member States, with the word “EUROPE” written in large letters.

In the background is a marvellous representation of the pavement of the Piazza del Campidoglio, designed by Michelangelo, where the Treaties were signed.

At the bottom of the coin, the year ‘2007’ is inscribed between the symbol of the Utrecht Mint and the symbol of the Mint Master. Further down is the inscription ‘KONINKRIJK DER NEDERLANDEN’.

At the top, in an arc and on two lines, are engraved the phrases “VERDRAGVAN ROME” “50 JAAR”. All around are the 12 five-pointed stars representing the European countries.

On the reverse, the Common Face of the 2-euro Holland coins. It is also important to note that this is the first coin minted by the Utrecht Mint to feature the second type of Common Face with the modified map.

The coin is included in the divisional FS, in a FDC Coincard and in the BENELUX set.

Let’s move on to the next coin. Specifically, this 2 Euro Commemorative Coin of the Netherlands was minted in 2009 on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Economic and Monetary Union.

As we can see, on the obverse there is a representation of a primitive, stylised figure with the Euro symbol on its side. The significance of this design is that the Euro represents the final stage in the economic journey of European citizens.

It is also important to note that the design of the 2-euro Netherlands 2009 was chosen by European citizens themselves in an online poll.

Above the design is the arched inscription ‘NEDERLAND’ and below that ‘EMU. 1999-2009″.

On the outermost edge are the 12 stars representing the European States. If you pay attention to the sixth star, you will see that it is enclosed between the symbol of the Utrecht Mint (right) and that of the Mint Master (left).

As for the reverse side, this is, of course, nothing more than the common side, which is the same for all 2-euro coins.

The coin is included in the FS Divisonal, in a FDC Coincard (issued in 2013), in a FS Box Set and in FS Capsule.

We now come to the first coin minted in honour of a historical figure. The 2-euro coin Commemorative of Holland was minted in 2011 in honour of Erasmus of Rotterdam, a Dutch theologian, philosopher, humanist and essayist.

The coin naturally commemorates not only the author but also his most famous work, The Praise of Folly, on the 500th anniversary of its publication.

On the obverse side of the 2 euro Netherlands 2011 we can see Erasmus himself, facing left, writing his book. To the left of the author is the effigy of Queen Beatrix.

Between the faces of the two persons are engraved the words ‘Beatrix Koningin der Nederlanden’ or ‘Beatrix Queen of the Netherlands’. Directly above the hand of Erasmus, the one intent on writing, we can see the symbol of the Utrecht Mint and that of the Mint Master next to each other with the minting year ‘2011’ immediately below.

All around, distributed on the outer crown, are the classic 12 five-pointed stars, representing the European states.

On the obverse side, however, the coin has the same face as the other 2-euro coins, the Common Face.

The coin is included in the divisional FS, in a Coincard FDC, in a Cofanetto FS and in the annual set BENELUX.

On the obverse, we can see the Euro symbol perfectly placed in the centre of the globe to indicate the centrality and importance of the currency for Europe. All around there are various other elements that reinforce this concept.

We can, for example, see the factory representing industry, the ship for trade, the wind turbines for energy and, of course, the people representing European citizens.

The word ‘NEDERLAND’ is engraved in an arc at the top and the dates ‘2002 – 2012’ at the bottom. On the outermost edge we can see the usual 12 five-pointed stars representing the European states.

On the reverse side, the common face is the same as the other 2-euro coins.
