It is no surprise that the Rietveld Schröder House is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. This architectural masterpiece, based on the ideals of De Stijl, is unrivaled both within and outside the oeuvre of the Utrecht architect and designer Gerrit Rietveld (1888-1964).

Rietveld designed the house in 1924, commissioned by the eccentric Truus Schröder. Building on his own designs and De Stijl principles, he created a house as a three-dimensional, asymmetrical composition. It is characterized by seamless transitions from inside to out, its primary colors (besides white, grey and black) and the playful, clever division of surfaces. Exterior, interior and furniture all bear that same Rietveld signature.

These coins have additional significance for the Netherlands as they are the first 5 euros to bear the likeness of King Willem-Alexander who acceded to the throne on April 30 as the Dutch head of State.
