Every mint master of the Royal Dutch Mint has his own mark, which is a personal symbol struck on the Netherlands’ coins and tokens. Satijn chose the Sint Servaasbrug, an arched stone footbridge in his hometown of Maastricht, as his mintmaster mark. The bridge symbolizes Satjin as a connected individual with strength in networking. His mark will be minted on all Dutch euro coins issued by the Royal Dutch Mint.
ROYAL DUTCH MINT MARKS
The application of a mint master mark is a centuries-old tradition. The first mint master of the Kingdom of the Netherlands was YDC Suermondt. During his mint mastership in the period 1815-38, he alternated twice with ticks. Since then each mint master has chosen his own sign and does not deviate from that later.
