The Royal Dutch Mint have unveiled (6th June) the designs of two new coins in the “Dutch heritage” series which began last year. The Kingdom of the Netherlands celebrates its bi-centenary in 2015 when the modern Kingdom was created after the defeat of Napoleonic forces in 1813. Prince William of Orange landed in the coastal city of Scheveningen in 1813 and headed a government which eventually resulted in the formation of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands – including the territory of present-day Belgium who, eventually ceded from the union in 1830.

This series will include a total of nine coins which will mark specific events, personalities and anniversaries during the next eight years (2012 to 2020) The first set of coins, the Amsterdam Canal Belt Gold and Silver Coins, which began the new series were issued in October 2012. The latest theme, the Rietveld Schroderhuis coins, are the second issue. The third coins will highlight the Kinderdijkse Mills. The first three sets of coins in this series have all been designed by Tine Melzer.
