 In 1950, Ludovic Boit began to assemble his coin collection and worked closely with the Lorenzo Shulman family. As his interest and knowledge grew, Beut decided to create a true record set - the largest and most beautiful collection of coins in the Netherlands.

Beuit became a distinguished student of numismatics and economics, publishing his research in journals and helping to reform the Netherlands' monetization system as the price of silver began to rise and Gresham's law of "good money drives out bad money" almost became a reality for the Netherlands. In 1967, the Dutch replaced silver with nickel, following Beut's reasoning, and avoided problems with local trade, providing healthy opportunities for future collectors.

Continuing to collect coins until his later years and instilling a numismatic mindset in his son Hein, Beut's collection covered the entire history of Dutch coinage, including the kingdom, provinces, cities, emergency coins, specimens and overseas territories, as well as Dutch paper currency.

Expect to see a remarkable combination of rarities and interesting varieties in gold and silver in this first offering, scheduled for sale on September 27-28, 2023 in the city of Osnabrück.
