On 2 February 2002 (2-2-2002!) Prince Willem Alexander
and Argentinian Maxima Zorreguieta married in Amsterdam. It was a beautiful
midwinter day with plenty of sunshine. Remarkable moments were the emotional
Argentinian music in the Great Church in Amsterdam which caused Maxima
to shed some melancholic tears. Of course there was the balcony-scene
with the inevitable kiss. During all day a huge amount of military and police personell where
sheduled to let the day pass smoothly.All personell participating in the remarkable event recieved the medal.
Obverse the couple facing eachother "en profile", unlike the other wedding medals
where the couple looks left. This gives it a more modern, if not private, look. The medal was designed on a computer and the stamp was
constructed by laser technique. The colours of the ribbon reflect the Royal House of Orange and the family Zorreguieta. On he reverse "twee twee tweeduizendtwee Maxima Willem Alexander" (two two twothousendtwo....). Material: Silver. Diameter 30mm.
