Netherlands Euro Coins "New Euro Coin Set After Queen's Abdication"

 

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)

Why are the coins of 2012 in the queensfolder and not from 2013, they abdication and coronation is in 2013.

Just as the sede vacante of Vatican in 2005. 2 sets of different coins in one year.

@Igor yes you are right - i have also asked the mint about that

Why is the King's folder marked as 2012? Shouldn't it be 2013 instead? Looks like this is a mistake that has to be corrected.
