Vincent van Gogh Geocoin

Vincent Willem van Gogh lived from 30 March 1853 till 29 July 1890. He was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter whose work had a far-reaching influence on 20th century art for its vivid colors and emotional impact. He suffered from anxiety and increasingly frequent bouts of mental illness throughout his life, and died largely unknown, at the age of 37, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.


The Vincent van Gogh Geocoin is a co-design by and Van Stoffelen Sr. This is the first geocoin made by which is located in Nuenen in the province of Noord-Brabant in The Netherlands. Vincent made several images in Nuenen.
