Company info

The Newa (Nederlandse Wapens, Dutch arms) series were issued around 1948. They were never used on cigars, but were sold in small packages. They could be collected in special albums. Click here for a small promotion leaflet of the bonds (in Dutch). The aim was educational; to increase the knowledge of topography and history for primary school children. For this also a special song was issued with the bonds, see below.

Albums and bonds

The idea was to issue bonds for all arms ever registered in the country; but after approx. 1 year the programme stopped. Albums for two provinces were issued; Zuid Holland and Noord Holland, neither are fully issued. The series for nearly all other provinces remained incomplete and no albums were issued. The albums were reprinted at least once, as there are two different albums for both Zuid- and Noord-Holland.

The bonds were issued by the Verkoop-centrale "Steeds Bereid" in Leiden. I have no further information about this company.

The bonds were issued in four main types; the small type for arms consisting only of a shield, the medium type for arms with crowns and the large type for arms with supporters. The small type has been issued either with a single colour or bicoloured. The small types have also been reprinted with lighter paper. The larger types have not been reprinted as far as I know.
