2020 Woudagemaal €5 Coin
- September 23, 2020
The Woudagemaal was opened in 1920 by Queen Wilhelmina, and its job was pumping excess water from Friesland into the Zuiderzee, and later into the IJsselmeer. To this day, the Woudagemaal still plays a crucial role within the Frisian water authority.

Not just in the Netherlands, but in the whole world, water poses many problems. There are three main issues: too much, too little or too dirty water.
The Woudagemaal is a laudable example of Dutch water management and represents the highlight of Dutch engineers and architects in the war against water.

Visual artist Berend Strik designed the Woudagemaal 5 Euro Coin. It is the first commemorative coin which depicts King Willem-Alexander with his beard.
The Woudagemaal 5 Euro Coin is therefore highly wanted by collectors.
