Results of tenders for production of Dutch coins
« on: October 17, 2019, 09:40:08 AM »
The Dutch National Bank has informed me that they awarded the tender for the production of Dutch circulation coins to the Royal Dutch Mint.  It is the first time that a tender is being held for the production of Dutch coins. The tender is for the production of circulation coins from 2020 up to and including 2024.

In November 2016, the Dutch government sold its shares Royal Dutch Mint to Heylen Group. Part of the deal was that the Royal Dutch Mint could continue to produce the Dutch coins until 2020.

The Dutch National Bank has cancelled the tender for the production of the Dutch collectors coins and other products for collectors as of 2020 because of a lack of interest for it. Dutch National Bank is working hard to get to a short term 'emergency contract' with a mint so that the Netherlands can continue to issue collectors coins and coin sets in 2020.
