New Dutch Coins to Get QR Codes

by Range

QR codes are slowly popping up pretty much everywhere, as most people carry a smartphone with a camera in it these days, and they can read these codes. Until now, I hadn’t seen any on money yet, but it looks like the Dutch have decided to put some on their newly minted coins. The Royal Dutch Mint will commemorate it’s 100th anniversary with silver and gold coins that will have a QR code on them.

This will be the world’s first QR coin and they’ll be available starting  June 22. The silver version is the €5 coin and the gold is the €10. The guys at 2d code checked it out, and once you scan the QR code it will point to this website (not yet live) where you’ll find a “surprise” waiting for you. I’ve got no idea what the surprise might be, but it will probably include historical facts about the people and monuments on the coins. Personally, I’d like to see some kind of Easter egg revealed on the website.

Still, the coin looks pretty cool and I’m sure it will sell quite well. Heck, I’d like to have one please.

    That would be cool if the site were a “wheresgeorge” type of thing where you could geotag the coin and see where it’s been.
