From the Field Day:

McDonald's offers. A Dutch imitation dollar note dating from 1997, advertising for a free cup of coffee if you order a donut, or a free soft drink with your Country Potatoes. The reverse of the note depicts said cup and drink with the text: "The Great Seal of the United States". Amen.

I suspected the "serial number" to be a date, but the offer was valid in 1997, not 1989. Could Lisa de Vos  - if I read the right signature correctly - be the woman in the centre of the coupon?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Here's detail for clarifying.

Karin de Vries is a spy in Robert Ludlum's The apocalypse watch. There may be a microchip in the eyes of the portrait. Big Hamburger is watching what you EAT! :)

I think the year should be read as 1968 which could be her birth year 1997-1968 = 29? Just a guess I am sure there are lots of other easter eggs. It also could be the year the McDonalds first opened in whatever country the coupon was from.

Unfortunately (in more than one sense :)), the first McDonalds in the Netherlands opened in 1971.
