From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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.

As in Finland, most of the Dutch shops have decided not to issue one and two cent coins starting from September 1, 2004. The coins remain legal tender, but are no longer issued in most of the 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".

Future changes to national sides

The Commission of the European Communities issued a recommendation on 19 December 2008, a common guideline for the national sides and the issuance of euro coins intended for circulation. One section of this recommendation stipulates that:

Article 4. Design of the national sides:
"The national side of the euro coins intended for circulation should bear the 12 European stars that should fully surround the national design, including the year mark and the indication of the issuing Member State's name. The European stars should be depicted as on the European flag."

Since Dutch low denominations euro coins place the indication of the member's name instead of the 12 stars of the union, a new design on the Dutch euro coins is expected in the near future to comply with these new guidelines, although nothing officially have been announced yet.[2]
