Janique, the official of the Dutch mint unveiled the 2020 dutch annual numismatic program and gave us the following details during the Berlin World Money Fair.
The following numismatic issues will go on sale in 2020.
The Netherlands will issue a €5 coin dedicated to the 75th anniversary of freedom in Europe with the end of World War II. This issue is scheduled for March with a ” coin first strike” ceremony. This coin will be issued in three numismatic qualities, Proof BU and UNC.
Another 5€ coin in the UNESCO series, heritage of the Netherlands series – UNESCO site WOUDA’s steam pump is 100 years old and keeps the polders safe from sea water. It is still in use!
The annual proof set, dedicated to the city of Rotterdam, will be personalized and will contain a proof silver medal dedicated to the Eurovision Song Contest. The medal will be decorated with the official logo of the competition. There will be 3,000 sets for sale.
The KNM has issued a set on the occasion of the World Money Fair at the beginning of 2020.
This is the fifth set of the “Ich Liebe Holland” theme series. This year’s theme is the capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam. The mintage of this set is limited to 500 copies.
There will also be the end-of-year UNC set, containing the 8 values of the annual divisional series. This collector will be limited to 17,500 sets. It will be available in August 2020.
In 2020, the KNM will not mint a commemorative €2 coin, for the second consecutive year. This is in line with the guidelines of the Dutch government, which considers such a production to be expensive for circulation coins, with a limited issue of only one year.
In addition, the Netherlands still has a very large stock of €2 coins.
A new series of Ducats, dedicated to the castles of the Netherlands, will be issued. The first coin will be dedicated to DE HAAR castle, located in UTRECHT.

In May, the golden ducat will be issued.
On the occasion of the Holland coin fair (organised by a Dutch coin club), 5 000 coin cards dedicated to Mondrian will be issued. 100 silver copies will also be offered as well as 5 coin cards with a gold medal. The coin cards with the gold medal will be awarded by means of a lottery.
Finally, the KNM will strike the medals and awards of the “In victus games” 2020. These games are intended for soldiers from all over the world who have been injured during their engagement.
