It feels like a difficult birth, but it is done! On my last trip to the Netherlands, I met with a (passive) WoC member, who sold me a batch of around 100 tokens, about 80% coffee machine tokens. I researched all the issuers, got permissions for a large number of pictures and set up dozens of new pages.

It finally occurred to me why I put all this effort in this project. It is an economic history of my life, without any boring family pictures. It explains where some of the best known brand names of my years of innocence came from and how most of them disappeared. I discovered new stories, heroes and villains. There's a doctor who got tortured and a wildly corrupt taxi boss to add to the already considerable cast of the coffee machine tokens show. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Meanwhile, the picture collection stands at just over 50% only. Please continue to donate pictures. A big thank you for past donors, including WoC members and a number of Dutch historical societies.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
