The Kingdom of the Netherlands start on 1839, before is United Kingdom of the Netherlands (includ Luxemburg and belgium ) in 19 April 1839 The Treaty of London, under the treaty, the European powers recognized and guaranteed the independence and neutrality of Belgium and confirmed the independence of the German-speaking part of Luxembourg. Maybe for that, only 7 monarchs are represent on the coin , but i see your point of view Illioplius and the comment of Lukas maybe right, coin commemorates also The royal family Orange-Nassau, not only 200 years of Kingdom .

But u agree that is a pretty coin

Illioplius: you are right, but also check family. Since 1813 is on throne Orange-Nassau royal family. The coin commemorates also The royal family Orange-Nassau, not only 200 years of Kingdom.

Joao: You are right, but this coin commemorates 200 years of Kingdom, doesn't it? So, I counted from 1813.

Very nice and original coin!
However, to be exact, Kingdom of the Netherlands had 8 monarchs since 1813.

  1. William Frederick
  2. William I
  3. William II
  4. William III
  5. Wilhelmina
  6. Juliana
  7. Beatrix
  8. Willem-Alexander (current)

Thus, one is missing.

This is what I call a cool design! Relatively simple, artistic and meaningful. Will most likely compete for the best design in 2013!
