There are eight denominations of coins with different national designs on one side and a single European design on the other. The two designs of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, by Bruno Ninaber van Eyben, were chosen as the national design for Dutch Euro coins. The production and circulation of euro coins is not a duty of the Nederlandsche Bank (DNB). Dutch Euro coins are minted by the Royal Dutch Mint. Circulating these coins, however, is the responsibility of the Ministry of Finance.
The Slovenians consider the Lipizzaner to be the first pure-bred ever established in their country. As such, it will most likely be pictured on their new euro coins. This horse is highly prized in their country.
