In the second half of 2020 Belgium is going to issue a 2 euro commemorative coin for painter Jan van Eyck. 155,000 pieces will be released in collectors editions. It will not be released into general circulation. The coin was designed by Luc Luycx.

I find the theme very good. It reminds me of Maaseik, his assumed birth place, where I would come across Van Eyck's statue every day. It is disappointing that this coin will not be released into general circulation.
