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.

As part of the tender for the Dutch circulation coins, which was awarded to the Royal Dutch Mint, the Ministry of Finance has decided that in case Royal Dutch Mint for some reason is unable to produce circulation coins for the Netherlands, the Dutch circulation coins will be produced at the Mint of Italy IPZS.

As for the production and sale of the collectors coins, coin sets and ducats, the Dutch National Bank has reached an agreement with the Royal Dutch Mint. Royal Dutch Mint will be producing and selling these products in 2020. Next year a new tender will be held for the production and sale of collectors coins, coin sets and ducats as of 2021.

The new tender for the production of Dutch coin sets, euro collectors coins and ducats is currently being held. Interested mints have until April 28 to submit a bid. In contrary to the previous tender, this one specifically mentions that the tender also is for the production of 2 euro commemorative coins.

In an email of earlier today, Royal Dutch Mint wrote that they are planning to produce the Dutch ducats of 2021, so they appear to be interested in this new tender. The tender is for production of these products in the years 2021 up to and including 2024.
