Yes and no. For €5 you get one coin, but you have to give them your addresss. Believe me, you don't WANT them to know your address! :-X

OIC. The Dutch variety of MDM (in Germany) or Trésor du Patrimoine? 8) Well, the offer may still be interesting for those who are customers of these companies anyway. I hope that the next issue (WWF, later this year) can be had at face "the good old way" again ...

Seems that Dutch mint has decided a roll of €5 collector coins too. 8)

Here's the link:

http://www.knm.nl/50-Jaar-WNF-Vijfje-2011-in-rol-van-20-munten/nl/product/1661/

The roll (20 coins) will cost €112.50, a premium of €0.625 over face per coin..

An interesting design - it is quite different from the British WWF commem, and like that one it does not simply reproduce some logo. Yet you recognize (in both cases) that the issue has something to do with nature ...

The Dutch WWF coin was designed by Willehad Eilers, and shows the "smallest tree on earth": The obverse depicts the top of the tree, with Queen Beatrix's portrait in the middle. On the reverse you see the roots. http://www.knm.nl/Het-ontwerp/nl/page/520/

Good to know that this one can be had at face again. For those who also want to donate to the WWF, there is a "coin with a mission" pack which costs a little more. And it seems the mint will also sell some Dutch-Chinese prestige set.

This article published by the Centraalmuseum Utrecht http://www.centraalmuseum.nl/page.ocl?pageid=67&expo_id=249&filter=3 does not explain either what the smallest tree could possibly be ... But it says that later this year (10 Sep 2001 until 11 Mar 2012) the designs of all participating artists can be seen at the museum, along with other exhibits that deal with nature and art. The inscription on the obverse (see attachment) is interesting too. The single "block" letters look like keys of ancient ;) typewriters.

(Edit: Sources whose identity may not be disclosed here 8) just informed me that this "smallest tree" should not be taken literally but as a reference to an entire tree being between the obverse and the reverse of the coin. Yeah, makes sense now ...)

The exhibition at the Centraal Museum has been extended until mid-August:

Munt met een missie - Coin on a mission
Exhibition open until 19 August 2012
Centraal Museum Utrecht, Nicolaaskerkhof 10 (Tue-Sun 11-17 h)

The link in the previous post is dead now. Use this one to read more (in English) about the exhibition:
http://centraalmuseum.nl/en/visit/exhibitions/munt-met-een-missie/

"This diverse exhibition is a collaboration between the Rijksakademie (Royal Academy of Visual Arts), Wereld Natuur Fonds (Dutch World Wildlife Fund) and Centraal Museum. To mark the 50th anniversary of the Wereld Natuur Fonds, the Rijksakademie asked 12 artists and designers to design a special commemorative coin. All twelve designs with the winning design are shown in this exhibition, as well as a selection of works from the versatile Centraal Museum collection."

Makes sad sense. It was not available at face value. Circulation coins don't qualify, apparently.

Yup, all the winners of this year's 'COTY' award are pseudo coins. See: http://www.numismaster.com/ta/numis/Article.jsp?ad=article&ArticleId=26169

I have used a QR on an air ticket. I just held up the iPhone for scanning at check points. It went flawlessly and was very quick. I was quite impressed. However, I confess to having printed the boarding card, just in case ...  :)

Peter

Recently I 've read Netherlands post issued stamps with QR post but with your real time  experience it seems bar code is obsolete & will soon replaced with QR code.


Leichtenstein issued a stamp showing QR code which connected you to the site of the Leichtensteinische Landesbank



Dutch advertising agency Gummo, the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAI) and TNT Post then introduced the first stamps in the world with augmented reality. The stamps show five unbuilt works by famous Dutch architects. Each stamp is printed with a unique QR-code that when placed in front of a webcam erect 3D buildings in the palm of your hand. By moving the stamp, users are able to see the virtual building from almost any angle.

The whole stamp sheet also yields an image of the NAI itself, when held up to your webcam.

The project also created a great iPhone app that lets you hold your phone up to a site and see what a wildly experimental, unbuilt design could have been.




Watch the video:-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTfHZ7nBW-E&feature=player_embedded

Issued by Liberia, when you decode the QR code on the sheet, you can read how chocolate is made






   

Cheers ;D

And apparently it will be the (overall) Coin of the Year as well:
http://www.muenzenwoche.de/en/News/4?&id=1684

Note that Krause makes its choice in the year "n" (here: 2012), based on coins that were issued in "n-1" (here: 2011). The actual COTY award ceremony is at the WMF in Berlin, in "n+1" (here: 2013) ...
