Netherlands “Four Kings” medal, 2013, issued by the Royal Dutch Mint.  It marks the occasion of the four kings of the Netherlands, as well as the accession of the Prince of Orange, Willem-Alexander, to the throne of the Netherlands on the 30th April of this year.

Michael Guilfoyle designed the obverse and reverse of the medal.

Just in case you wondered, Mr Guilfoyle did design the Mozambique 10,000 meticais of 2003, as well as the similar 1 centavo first issued in 2006, when Mozambique's currency was redenominated.

Netherlands “Four Kings” medal, 2013, issued by the Royal Dutch Mint.

That medal I am not so fond of, but primarily because of the way Willem-Alexander's hair is depicted. :) Now Michael Guilfoyle just designed a new Dutch collector coin too, and that has a mix of "old" bank note design and modern elements which I find quite attractive:



(Side note: Does anybody know what the middle initial "J" means?)

Michael Guilfoyle is sure very "versatile" - what I mean is that some designers have a certain personal style or individual preferences that you find on many of their designs. Nothing wrong with that of course, but Guilfoyle seems to be flexible in a positive sense. Just compare the Dutch piece (see previous post) and this one, Ireland 2014 ...

The reverse of this Irish 10 euro coin that was issued in 2005 depicts another design by Mr. Guilfoyle, It has been issued to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the birth of mathematician William Rowan Hamilton. The coin depicts some of the mathematical symbols that he used within his works.

I used those same symbols in my more arcane writings, so it sort of commemorates me also. It is fortunate that he included the infinity sign, or any Greek could have claimed ownership as well. :D

Another design by Michael Guilfoyle this time for a 1 dollar bullion coin of Australia (2014), on this coin he doesn't use the J  in his designers initials. The coin was also issued in a colored and gold plated edition. Mr. Guilfoyle received a lot of criticism about this coin, a lot of people find that the koala doesn't look real.

In 2006 Alderney issued 3 coins depicting another design by Michael Guilfoyle. There were issued: a silver 10 pounds coin, a gold plated 50 pounds coin and a gold 1000 pounds coin, all with the same design. The coins were minted to commemorate the 80th birthday of queen Elizabeth. I like the design although he had not a lot work on it.
