In 2014 the Royal Dutch Mint issued a new commemorative coin which pays tribute to the country’s former Queen Beatrix who after a reign of exactly 33 years – formally abdicated as head of State in favor of her eldest son, the Prince of Orange who succeeded his mother as King Willem-Alexander.
Willem-Alexander (born 27 April 1967) is the King of the Netherlands. Willem-Alexander was born in Utrecht and is the oldest child of Beatrix of the Netherlands and German diplomat Claus van Amsberg. He became Prince of Orange as heir apparent upon his mother's accession on 30 April 1980, and succeeded her following her abdication on 30 April 2013.
Beatrix (born 31 January 1938) reigned as Queen of the Netherlands from 1980 until her abdication in 2013, after a reign of exactly 33 years.
The inner part of the coin depicts the effigies of both the King Willem-Alexander and the former Queen Beatrix. The King’s portrait takes precedence in order and both the King & Princess Beatrix now face to the right as successive Dutch Monarchs are traditionally portrayed facing in alternating direction for coinage.

A geographical map of Western Europe spans the outer ring and inner core on the right side of the coin. The inscription 2 EURO is superimposed over the map of Europe, with the numeral “2” located in an open field representing the eastern Atlantic Ocean.
