The Dutch State issues special euro coins for collectors. De Nederlandsche Bank oversees the production of these coins.

Design and production of special euro coins

A new coin starts with a new design. Artists are invited to create a design for a new collector coin. For example, a €5 or €10 coin commemorating an event or a person. The State Secretary for Finance lays down the final design in a Royal Decree. On behalf of the State, DNB orders the production of the coins. DNB holds a tender to select a mint to produce the coins. Collectors and other interested parties can buy collector coins from, for example, the Royal Dutch Mint.
