AMSTERDAM. Share of 2000 guldens. black. No 60. Heavy folds with splits. Large format. Founded 1808 to insure houses, business and merchandise against fire, theft or loss while being transported by coach or ship as well as issuing life rentes. For the latter type of business, they are regarded as thesecond oldest life insurer on the European Continent (one year after the 1807-founded Hollandsche Soci‰teit van Levensverzekering). The first president of the company was Paul Iwan Hogguer, burgomaster of Amsterdam at that time. His successor and co-founder of the company, Jan Hodschon, was one the most important men at that time in the Netherlands (politician, chairman of the Nederlandsche Bank,...). In 1983 the company celebrated its 175th anniversary. Its turnover at that point was 150 mio. guilders, compared to 40,551 guilders in 1808 (and a first years' profit of 24,046 guilders). In 1895 it withdrew from the life insurance business, focussing solely on damage. In 1923, the British Sun Alliance bought the entire capital (as seen on thiscertificate) though the company remained to operate under its own name. After a name change in 1974, the company is now known as Hollandse Verenigings Soci‰teit, or H.V.S. Only 2 of these pieces were found several years ago.
