Dutch euro coins

The euro (EUR or ) is the common currency for most European nations within the European Union, including the Netherlands. The euro coins have two different sides; one common, European side showing the value of the coin and one national side featuring a design chosen by the EU member state where the coin was minted. Each member state has one or more designs unique to that country.

For images of the common side and a detailed description of the coins, see Euro coins.

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.
