STEPHAN SATIJN, new KNM mintmaster
- September 20, 2017
Stephan Satijn has been appointed as Mint Master at the Royal Dutch Mint. Satijn has worked as alderman responsible for economic affairs and infrastructure for the municipality of Venlo since 2011. Prior to that he was employed in the international business community. This gives him the proper experience to succeed as Mint Master.
All Mint Masters have their own Mint Master’s Privy Mark. The Mint Master’s Privy Mark is a personal signature which is struck on coins and medals. Stephan Satijn’s Privy Mark will be revealed later this year. The current 2017 euro coins carry his predecessors’ Mint Master’s Privy Mark that depicts a sailboat with a star.

The euros coins struck by KNM in 2018 will be the first euros issued with the new mintmaster mark. The divisional series 2018 should meet success with euro coins collectors.
