Künker Fall Auction 393 – Coins of the Netherlands: The Lodewijk S. Beuth Collection

By Künker GmbH ……
Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,

In Künker Auction 393, we would like to present something extraordinary: the Lodewijk S. Beuth Collection. According to our Dutch business partner Laurens Schulman, this is the first time in as many as 35 years that such a comprehensive collection of high-quality Dutch coins enters the market!

It was assembled by Lodewijk S. Beuth. The entrepreneur was bitten by the numismatic bug in the 1950s. He purchased his coins at all major auction sales of the time, including the sale of the world-famous collection of King Farouk, pieces of which you can find in our sale.

But his passion for numismatics went beyond his collecting activities. Beuth’s expertise becomes apparent in the many suggestions he submitted to his government – among other things on commemorative coins and the introduction of a European currency. For this efforts, he was honored by Prime Minister Joop den Uyl.

Now the first part of the collection, built by Lodewijk S. Beuth and his son, will be offered by our auction house. Part 1 contains coins that were issued after 1795, as well as specimens of the Dutch overseas territories. As usual, we chose some highlights of the collection to be presented in short films, an article and our list of highlights.

We hope you enjoy browsing through the material!

Best regards from Osnabrück,

Your Künker Team
