The Flood of Zeeland on Medals, by Sjaak Jasperse

Craftsman Sjaak Jasperse from Terneuzen has made special floods medals in recent years. Sjaak Jasperse, born in September 1953 in Sint-Maartensdijk, has depicted the disaster in 38 penny objects in a contemporary way. All exhibited tokens are creative representations of the stories he heard over the years about the flood of 1953; from his father, from his mother; touring through the landscape of Tholen.

 There is also a catalog
 available that includes all
 medals from the exhibition.

 This is for sale in our webshop
 and in the museum shop.


The exhibition can be seen in the Watersnoodmuseum from 31 May to 31 December 2018.
