- Obverse: Sand Artist Gert van der Vijver, in the Netherlands known from the television show “De Zandtovenaar”, created a unique design for the Royal Dutch Mint. To create his art, he uses sand and a light box. For the circus culture issue, he created a small version of an actual circus ring. The sand design was converted to a 3D design, keeping the original sand structure. The issue pays tribute to the traditional circus ring. The issue visualizes the dynamics and the history of circus culture. The horses where it all started with transition into trapeze artists performing dangerous tricks. Their hands are just out of reach. The suspense is almost visible! The clown in the center gives nothing away. If you look at the sand issue from close by, the fine grains of sand are visible.

- Guaranteed by the Royal Dutch Mint.

Colorful posters, a large round tent and a village filled with circus artists. Many places in the Netherlands welcome a circus from time to time. The origin of the circus takes us back to England. As of 1770 Phillip Astley gave performances in his New British Riding School in London. After the horsemanship acts, clowns, acrobats and jugglers quickly found a place in the circus too. Circus culture was born! In the ring, often covered with sand, the artists perform. Nowadays, circus takes many forms and there are also theater circuses and Christmas circuses which take place in (theater) halls.
