My apologies for being off topic, but I would like to add other information to my previous post:

Apparently the Netherlands Antillean guilder, which is still used on  Curaçao and Sint Maarten,  will be replaced by the Caribbean guilder (expected to take place in 2013)

The former Dutch colony Suriname, in South America, used the Surinamese guilder until 2004. In that year it was replaced by the Surinamese Dollar.

In the former Dutch (East) Indies the currency was the 'Netherlands Indies' gulden. It was replaced by the Indonesian Rupiah after Indonesian independence in 1945.

The 'Netherlands New Guinean' gulden was the currency of Netherlands New Guinea until 1963. Until 1950, issues of the Netherlands Indies circulated. A separate currency came into being when West New Guinea became the only part of the Netherlands Indies. to remain in Dutch control. The currency was fixed at parity with the Dutch gulden. It circulated until Netherlands New Guinea became part of Indonesia as West Irian in 1963. That year, the West Irian rupiah replaced the gulden at par.

Don't give Maxima any ideas. !!!
BTW, most shopping carts in Germany require a Euro deposit and I have my own little collection of QueenBee Euros for that matter in my purse and car. I am known to get quite nasty when one of those euros find it's way out of my collection and into the local ice cream parlor (a scoop, a euro). There aren't so many around here.... Real mad

In the past there have been an experiment in which the roulation of Euro coins through out Europe were monitored. In other words how long would it take if specific Euro coins would pop up in the Netherlands and in which amount.

My own experience is that in the Netherlands you will encouter many German and Belgium Euro coins. And during and after holiday season you will see many Spanish, French and Italian coins.

Recently I have helped my mother sorting out the most recent 2 Euro coins assets (The remembrance ones). I have seen many German coins. And also you have to watch out with the German 2 Euro Coins, as there are multiple variations of one 2 Euro remembrance coins. The same image on the coin, but with a different letter (A, D, F, G, J), which stand voor a different coinhouse.

Respectively:
•A for Berlijn
•D for München
•F for Stuttgart
•G for Karlsruhe
•J for Hamburg

Thanks Principessa Smiley There are galleries of them on Polish websites today too, and as usual they take more space than report from the commemorations because nobody cares about politicians.
