According to the treasury the inclusion of mintmarks and mintmastermarks on Dutch coins will remain possible.

Sounds good to me. Not that the two are actually necessary, but they have been on Dutch coins for so long that it would be strange to do away with them now ...

The bill has a few minutes ago been approved in parliament. As has been mentioned here before, the following changes were made:

The Netherlands can no longer issue bullion coins. 
The inclusion of Mint and Mintmaster marks on the Dutch coins is no longer mandatory.
By law, Mintmaster is no longer an official title.

Hmm, has NL recently issued any bullion coins? I don't think so but am not sure.

No, they have never used the opportunity. A concept for the design was made and a closed design competition was subsequently held though.
