First Jheronimus Bosch-minted
In Den Bosch, Friday, the first Hieronymus Bosch-minted. That happened in the Jheronimus Bosch Art Center (JBAC) by mayor Ton Rombouts and singer Boudewijn de Groot. It is a currency of five euros.
On the vijfje are details to be seen from the work of Bosch the Garden of earthly Delights, the Harvestman and the Last Judgment. The objects are depicted in a vortex to the ‘eye’, the center of the coin. On the reverse is a portrait in a mirror image of king Willem-Alexander, whose left eye coincides with the eye on the other side.
The Hieronymus Bosch-vijfje is a commemorative coin, but there can also just be paid. The coin is a limited edition bat.
2016 is the five hundredth year of his death of Jheronimus Bosch, who lived from 1450 to 1516. In Den Bosch there are various ways of meditating, including exhibitions, theatre and music.
