Description of obverse and reverse Just like the «Grachtengordel Vijfje» and the next coin in this series, the design for the «Rietveld Vijfje» originates from Tine Melzer. The front shows a clear portrait of King Willem-Alexander printed in halftone and a matt map of the world, formed by fingerprints of family members of Melzer. The map symbolizes the collective ownership of Dutch World Heritage and worldwide symbol for the Dutch culture. The reverse shows, surrounded by the continuing map of the world, a manually drawn iconographic image of the Rietveld Schröder House – recognizable and functional. The value indication in letters enhances the Dutch signature of this national commemorative coin. The «Rietveld Vijfje» proudly adorns the official UNESCO logo and the European star logo. And the Netherlands can rightly be proud of this second piece of art in the Dutch World Heritage series.
A brief annotation Since 2000 the Rietveld Schröder House at the Prins Hendriklaan 50 in Utrecht has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. The prominent residence was designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1923-1924 and is fully grafted onto the ideals of the art movement De Stijl. Architectonic masterpiece Gerrit Rietveld (1888-1964) designed the Rietveld Schröder House commissioned by Truus Schröder-Schräder. Not only was this his first entire residence, it also became an exuberant form experiment. By way of inspiration Rietveld used his own furniture designs and the ideas of De Stijl, a Dutch art movement that has been named after the magazine of the same name founded in Leiden in 1917. The result is a three-dimensional, asymmetrical composition with smooth transitions between indoors and outdoors and the use of primary colours in addition to black, white and grey. The design is also characterised by a playful, well thought-out division of the surface. Both indoors and outdoors everything has the same renowned Rietveld signature. The ‘Rietveld Vijfje’, the First five Euro coin with the portrait of King Willem-Alexander, honours this architectonic masterpiece and is the second commemorative coin in the Dutch World Heritage series.

То, что рисунок монеты создан отпечатками пальцев, подтверждает описание. Весьма креативный современный художественный ход.

Эх, какого-то младшего Мельцера замучили отпечатки в форме Кубы или Новой Зеландии ставить. Вот уже где дитё плакало. Исполнение и задумка - отлично.
Николай Чудин
монета и исполнение красивое,но вот сам Дом Шрёдера похож на монете на офисный стол, если бы его исполнили в полутонах как короля думаю боролась бы за победу
Дмитрий Максимов
Отличная идея. Да и домик очень необычен.

От России только Дальний Восток изображен! Балл снижен!
Владимир Борисов
идеи континентов как отпечатков пальцев больше всего понравилась
