The Netherlands - Bicycle tax plates 1934-1940 - 31 pieces - Brass.

Collection with 31 pieces various bicycle tax plates. All in neat collector’s worthy quality and individually wrapped. Struck at the Rijksmunt in Utrecht. The designs are by J.C. Wienecke (who also designed several Dutch coins from that time) & W.C. Rozendaal.

General info:
Minister of Finance Colijn introduced the bicycle tax. He said to regret such a move, though that the deplorable condition the treasury was in made such a decision necessary. At that moment there were 1.7 million taxable bicycles in The Netherlands. The tax concerned the bicycle, not the owner. To prove that taxes were paid, a plate had to be mounted on the handlebar. These plates were struck at the Rijksmunt and could be bought at the post-office for three guilders. The revenues first went partly to the ‘Wegenfonds’ and later in total. Given the large number of thefts of the bicycle plates, it was allowed to wear them on the left chest as of 1933 as well, so that they wouldn’t be left on an unguarded bicycle. The tariff was reduced in 1927, when the income of this form of tax came above a million, to fl. 2.50. The unemployed could get a free bicycle plate during the crisis time, in these plates a round hole was punched for inspection, because it was not allowed to use your bicycle on Sunday with a free of charge provided plate.
