A Modern Rarity: Netherlands 2011 Commemorative €2. Erasmus of Rotterdam
This is the first commemorative €2 coin in Dutch history. It pays tribute to one of the great Dutchmen: the humanist Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam on the 500th anniversary of the publication of his greatest work, The Praise of Folly (Lof der Zotheidor or Moriae Encomium), a satirical critique of society and the Catholic church. The collector versions of this coin sold out on issue and we cannot guarantee significant quantities. This proof coin is also in the 2011 proof set. Mintage: 2,000
