The Utrecht mint became the Royal Dutch Mint in 1567. The institution became private in 2016. On April 1st 2020, the Royal Dutch Mint moved from the monumental building on the Merwedekanaal in Utrecht to a new building on the Gouden Hoon in Houten.
During the German occupation during World War II, two specific mintmarks were used:
- The acorn to identify the coins which were minted to be used in the mainland territory of the Kingdom of the Netherlands; the mark symbolizes the fruit of a typical tree of the country.
- The palm tree to identify the coins which were minted to be used in the overseas territories of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. These territories were the Netherlands East Indies, Suriname and the former Netherlands Antilles (Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, St. Martin, St. Eustacius and Saba). The mark symbolizes a tree often seen on tropical islands.
