Interest on centuries-old bonds

Legal successor De Stiching Rijnlanden pays an interest amount of € 714.60 on rare bonds of the Lekdijk Bovendams water board dating from 1638 and 1765 from the historical archive of the Amsterdam exchange. The bonds issued by Lekdijk Bovendams are the oldest known still interest-bearing bonds in the world and symbolize the financial strength and reliability of the Netherlands and its origins: the eternal struggle of the Dutch against the water.
