QR codes on coins
« on: September 24, 2016, 11:12:07 PM »
In this topic all coins with a QR code on it can be found. So far only 5 such coins have been issued. To be able to scan a QR code with your smartphone or tablet, you first need to install a QR-code reader from the App Store or Google Play. All images of the coins in this topic can also be scanned.

The Netherlands, 5 euro, 2011. 100th anniversary of the building of the Royal Dutch Mint.

After scanning the QR code the URL http://www.q5g.nl/ appears. Originally that website looked like this. It was a special website about the building of the Royal Dutch Mint and this occasion. Later the domain name was linked to the general website of the Dutch mint but at present it does no longer work.

Russia, 100 Rubles, 2014. Olympic Games of 2012.

After scanning the QR code, the url http://www.cbr.ru/London2012 appears from which people were automatically being redirected to this page on the website of the Central Bank of Russia on which all Russian athletes that won a medal in the 2012 Olympic Games are listed. These days the webpage http://www.cbr.ru/London2012 does no longer exist.

Latvia, 5 Euro, 2016. Entrepreneurship in Latvia.

After scanning the QR-code on this coin the text "STRĀDĀ AR DROSMI, UZŅĒMĪBU UN ATBILDĪBU!" appears. This translates to "Work with courage, initiative and responsibility!". The QR-code doesn't refer to a website, only a pop-up appears with this text.
