Description of obverse and reverse
The reverse of the coin shows the number “75” in the form of a jaunty ribbon, that is depicted in relief. The ribbon has a noticeable front and back side, respectively in matte and glossy finish, which suggests depth. The text “75 jaar vrijheid” on the reverse can be read in a single glance. 

The portrait of King Willem-Alexander on the obverse is created out of the same type of ribbon as on the reverse. The text is placed in the free spaces of the image. This creates a unity between text and image and between both sides of the coin. The result is a coin that shows depth and dynamics.
A brief annotation
On 5 May 1945 the Second World War officially ended in the Netherlands. The liberation of the Netherlands had however already started earlier. On 17 September 1944 a part of the Netherlands was liberated during operation Market Garden. In 2019 and in 2020 the Netherlands celebrate 75 years of freedom. The celebratory year started in 2019 in Terneuzen when King Willem-Alexander rung the historical bell buoy. This marked the beginning of a year filled with commemorations and celebrations.
