Netherlands Euro Coins

The Netherlands was one of the EU's smaller members, with a population of 15 million, but also one of its most enthusiastic. From the outset it embraced the euro, and planned a quicker changeover to the currency than any other country, withdrawing the guilder four weeks into 2002. The country which hosted the negotiations for the Maastricht and Amsterdam treaties, benefited from a weak euro.

Dutch euro coins have two designs by Bruno Ninaber van Eyben, both of which feature a portrait or effigy of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. All coins share the 12 stars of the EU and the year of imprint in their design. Like in Finland, the Dutch have decided not to issue one and two cent coins anymore starting from September 1, 2004. The coins remain legal tender, but are no longer issued in shops. Sums are rounded to the nearest €0.05; hence sums ending in €0.01, €0.02, €0.06 or €0.07 are rounded down, and those ending in €0.03, €0.04, €0.08 or €0.09 are rounded up. The rounding is applied to the grand total only, while individual prices are still shown and summed up with €0.01 precision. This method is known as "Swedish rounding".

2014 Redesign

The designs of the new Dutch series of euro coins were reveled in November 2013, created by Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf. The Netherlands won't mint any coins of 1 and 2 euro cent for circulation, however, these two denominations are available in sets. The second series shows the effigy of the new Head of State King Willem-Alexander. On the 1-, 2- , 5-, 10-, 20- and 50-euro cent coins the effigy is separated in two parts by an area with a vertical line. At the left of the vertical line, reading from bottom to top, the Dutch mint master mark, the text "Willem-Alexander" and the mint mark. At the right of the vertical line, reading from top to bottom, the text "Koning der Nederlanden". At the bottom left of the effigy the year of issuance "2014".

On the 1- and 2-euro coins the design shows at the right side of the effigy three vertical lines. Between the first and the second line from the right, the Dutch mint master mark, the year of issuance and the mint mark. Between the second and the third line from the right the text "Willem-Alexander" and after the third line from the right the text "Koning der Nederlanden".

Netherlands introduced a new design for the euro coins in 2013

The font chosen for the new coins was designed in 2008 by Ivan Gladkikh and Alexandr Kalachëv under the art direction of Alexey Maslov: 2 euros, 1 euro, 50 cents, 20 cents, 10 cents, 5 cents) .
