    Belgium - is a one of the European kingdoms. It has an area 30519 sq.km. and population about 10100000. Capital: Brussels.
    It was a Roman colony 2000 years ago; then it was a Spanish province, French province...
    Somebody called Belgium as "the battlefield of Europe".
    But since the 1830 Belgium is an independent monarchy.

    Great looking coins, esp the 1870 1 Fr!
    Not many recent European coins have holes in the middle, like the 5, 10, 25 centimes? Do you or any other posters know the purpose of the hole? I'd think that by the 20th century nobody felt the need to string them together?

    Nice selection of Belgium coins. I have just over 100 different KM numbers covered in my collection.

    Another reason for holes in the center of the coin is to make it easier for blind citizens to easily distinguish between coins of similar size. Another European country that has issued a number of coins with center holes is Denmark.
