NL 2014: Double Portrait "Farewell to queen Beatrix"

Are you sure that they are only issued as proofs? I bought the loose set from a dealer, not KNM. I'll check my coins again tonight to see if they are really proofs. ;) I really didn't may much...little above face value!

To me it was a disappointment that they didn't deliver them in the wooden box that is shown on the visual.

That's really strange. I have seen a number of sales on eBay where coins were clearly shown in wooden box...

Basically I like the idea. Sure, one "throne change" commemorative would have been enough. ;) But if the mint wants two, this is a neat way of doing it ...

For everyone who was wondering why the mint issued 2 similar coins. The second coin has been minted on special request of the Dutch Royal Family.
