THE ROYAL DUTCH MINT'S CIRCULATING REMBRANDT COINS

Kerry Rodgers writes: "Bibliomaniacs who are also Art Appreciators
may be interested in the Rembrandt coins circulating in Leiden at
an exchange rate of 1 Rembrandt = 1 Euro. A large number of shops,
cafes, bars, restaurants in Leiden happily accept them. The bimetallic
coins clearly have official sanction as they have been struck at
the Royal Dutch Mint.

Sets of both the circulating coins and versions in silver can be
obtained at this web address.  Scroll down through the Dutch and
you will find English.
Full Story

How many other countries have allowed [or would be big enough to
allow] one community to produce and circulate such coinage for
such an anniversary?"
