The men of the year “1976” is part of the tradition of “vintages life of Louvain.” Typical of Leuven and unique in Europe and perhaps even in the world.
For more than 100 years men of the same birth year unite and they are counting down to their Abraham Year. In addition, they carry the values of “friendship”, “solidarity” and “commitment”. More information can be found on www.jaartallen.be
The initiative “the vintages life of Leuven” is included on the representative list for Immaterial Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO and on the list of Immaterial Cultural Heritage Flanders
The men of 1976 organize in preparation for their Abraham Year numerous activities. At these events they use these tokens as drink tokens but they have also a promotional value because they are considered for many as a nice souvenir.
We could produce this particular coin for these particular men of 1976!
