Netherlands Euro Coins 2012 "Europa Star Collectors Coin"

The Netherlands will issue two coins in the series "Europa Star Programme" which this year is dedicated to Sculptures - the coins will have the same design on the observe and a slightly different design on the reverse. The design on the observe shows a sculpture of the Queen, whereas the reverse shows the denomination in text. The €5 denomination one will be minted in silver (BU and Proof), whereas, the €10 (Proof) will be minted in gold. The silver coin will also be available in coin card and rolls. Check the source for further information.

Well, nothing exceptional really. It's all computer generated stuff from pre-existing photos. Do they have proper artist-engravers or not ?????

My God.... this time the "experimentalism" of Dutch designers is quite extreme, eh?
