About the coin
The design of the Schokland Vijfje is by Katrin Korfmann.
On the other side of the Schokland Vijfje you will see a grid with the typical Dutch polder landscape, which frames the outlines of the former island of Schokland. You will see the former island of shockland that became an island on dry land after the reclamation. The 4 different icons refer to the cultural values and history of Schokland:
Fish : Zuiderzee, fishing, sea, fish market
Footprint : Archaeological value, masterpiece museum with footprint 4,000 years old
Fishing boat : Schokker, fishermen, economy of Schokland
Mammoth : Ice age, former resident area, prehistory, archeology
On the front of the coin we see the portrait of the King and profile, looking to the right: abstract but recognizable. The portrait is a free line drawing, in the style of the landscape on the reverse. It thus forms a stylistic tool for the King’s commitment and the cultivated landscape.
