The Royal Dutch Mint is celebrating its 100th anniversary, so they’re producing these 5 and 10 euro QR coins in both silver and gold. Scanning the code directs you to this website (though as of now, it’s not formatted for mobile devices). At the moment it’s unclear what will be on the site when the coins are released June 22nd. Maybe it’ll be information about how the coin was made or the person whose face is printed on it. Maybe it’ll just be an ad for a free Coke from Wendy’s. Whatever it is, coin collectors will probably be overjoyed to get their hands on these shiny 21st century doubloons. Assuming their love for Wendy’s doesn’t outdo their love for collecting currencies. [2d code and The Rich Times via DVICE]
The Dutch Are Making QR-Coded Coins. Seriously.
