“In art economy is always beauty.”
People who want to support the bank but cannot afford a genuine reservecoin, may just become a member of the coop Art Reserve Bank. Membership is for live and comes in the shape of a special coin designed by Melle Hammer. As a new member you will also receive the kit to set up a branch in your own home.
As a branch manager you will receive a 10% bonus for every coin exchanged via your branch. If you open your branch to the public, the bonus will even be raised to 20%.
A harsh sanction after the 2008 crisis was the compulsory signing by bankers of a declaration of integrity. For the Art Reserve Bank, Ron Peperkamp, the project's initiator, has made a slightly adapted version of this declaration. 25 hand printed copies of this woodcut (60x100 cm) are available – a must-have for conscientious artists, art lovers and, of course, bankers!

By popular demand, reproductions of this woodcut by Ron Peperkamp have been printed. For a donation of € 15 you receive a copy signed by the initiator of the bank.
