This commemorative coin with the theme 400 years of diplomatic trade relations between the Netherlands and Turkey, features the first time the tulip - the national symbol of the Netherlands - has been shown on a Dutch euro coin.

Trade between Turkey and the Netherlands started to flourish in the Middle Ages, when the Dutch, usually when journeying to the Holy Land, visited Turkey as pilgrims or on a crusade. In the sixteenth century the Tulip was exported from Turkey to Europe, which lead to the Tulipmania in the Netherlands and eventually the tulip became the Dutch national symbol.

The obverse shows a portrait of Queen Beatrix along with a flowering tulip as the national symbol. On the back, a closed tulip can be seen in combination with the Turkish flag, as a symbol of the tulip’s native country.
