Netherlands Euro Design

netherlands

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.
As in Finland, most of the Dutch shops have decided not to issue one and two cent coins starting from September 1, 2004. The coins remain legal tender, but are no longer issued in most of the shops. Sums are rounded to the nearest €0.05; hence sums ending in €0.01, €0.02, €0.06 or €0.07 are rounded down, and those ending in €0.03, €0.04, €0.08 or €0.09 are rounded up. The rounding is applied to the grand total only, while individual prices are still shown and summed up with €0.01 precision. This method is known as "Swedish rounding".
