BRUXELLES. Action de F2116, coupure d'un Dixième 211 Fr.60c. green, brown, black. No 192-02. Rather heavy folds with a few tiny holes. Also one edge-tear at the bottom. Decorative and colourful border. This is the first issued A.G. share we are able to offer. This important insurance company was originally founded in 1824 with a capital of 600.000 Florins. Its main founder, Jacques Coghen, became the first Belgian Minister of Finance in 1830. The company IPO was in 1909, hence the share we offer is from before its stock exchange listing. Today, AG Insurance counts 3,7 mln. clients in Belgium. It is part of Ageas (who owns 75% of its shares), previously knowns as the Fortis Holding. An important discovery.
