The Royal Dutch Numismatic Society was founded in 1892 in Amsterdam. In 1899 it was granted the title “Royal” by H.M. Queen Wilhelmina. The Society supports and promotes anyone who is involved in coins, medals, paper money and related numismatic objects either as a professional or as an amateur. This is done by organising meetings, promoting exhibitions and supporting local numismatic clubs.
The Dutch Art Medal Society (VPK) was founded in 1925 and promotes the medal art in the Netherlands. The society fosters the medal tradition and explores the boundaries of numismatic art. A medal is characterized by size and visual quality. Material and concept form a unit on front and back side. The VPK gives annually two assignments to artists / designers. Thoughtful design and visual quality are starting. Members and supporters of the association receive annually the years medal and have the opportunity to purchase the registration medal.
The Beeldenaar is a bimonthly journal in the field of numismatics and medal art. The journal is published by Royal Dutch Society of Numismatics and the Dutch medal association. For members of these associations a subscription is included. Additionally, people interested in medals and coins can take a subscription to the magazine without membership.
In 2009 Dariusz F. Jasek created his own database of all Dutch gold ducats he knew. At that moment his only intention was to acquire knowledge for his own use. In the next year he added to his database all gold ducats listed on CoinArchives. Also every Dutch gold ducat he found, whether it was from an auction catalog, from coin dealer or a private collection, was added to the JDD database. The idea of writing the first comprehensive book about the Netherlands ducats appealed to Him. Meanwhile this book has become reality and you can find more information on www.GoldDucats.com
