Luxembourg has issued this coin in connection with the 125th anniversary of the Nassau-Weilburg dynasty. The Dutch King Willem III was also a Grand Duke of Luxembourg. When King Willem III died in 1890, he could not be succeeded by Princess Wilhelmina in connection with the Salic Law, which allowed only a male succession. At that moment, the Dynasty Nassau-Weilburg originated with the first Grand Duke Adolphe. He was succeeded by William IV and because Salic Law was abolished, he was succeeded by Grand-Duchess Marie-Adélaide. Marie-Adélaide was succeeded by Grand-Duchess Charlotte who was followed by Grand Duke Jean. This was followed by the current Grand Duke of Henri in the year 2000.

Have you ever noticed that Luxembourg's coins are almost always "Lëtzebuerg" and only in some cases "Luxembourg"? The reason is as follows û the two most important languages in Luxembourg are Luxembourg and French. (German, to a lesser extent, is a third language). As a starting point, on each Luxembourg coin the country name is æLëtzebuergÆ. When there is another text description in French, the country name "Luxembourg" is displayed on the coin. On the 2015 coin the text æDynasty Nassau-WeilbourgÆ is shown. Weilbourg is written in French, so the country name is shown as æLuxembourgÆ.
