Netherlands Euro Coins - Euronews is reporting that Dutch Queen Beatrix will address the nation on Monday evening prompting the Dutch media to report that she would abdicate in favour of her son, Prince Willem-Alexander. If this happens that would mean that the Netherlands will change the designs of the standard coins, thus, would issue a new set of euro coins.
Update - The above news has been confirmed by the Queen herself. That means we will have a new euro coin set from the Netherlands.
01 February 2013 - The Dutch mint on its facebook page has just published the poster below saying "Keep Calm because we are Ready" - this is probably referring to the new standard coins from the Netherlands. (check the image below)
03 February 2013 - To commemorate the abdication of the Queen and the coronation of the new King, the Netherlands will issue 2 BU sets, one containing the current standard coins with the queen on them and the other folder will contain the new standard coins with the king on them. The 2 folders will be joint together by a special hexagon token, half of the token will be in the "Queen's Folder" and the other half in the "King's Folder" (check the images below)
