World’s first QR codes coins going into currency circulation in the Netherlands. The pair of coins, a silver (5€) and gold (10€) were made to celebrate 100 year anniversary of the mint go into circulation on June 22nd and the mint promises a surprise if users follow the codes embeded link [www.q5g.nl] which goes live in the 22nd.
I’m not sure how scannable the codes are going to be, its quite a small size, the larger coin is just over and inch wide and the QR code is only part of that.
Still I congratulate the Royal Dutch Mint of being so forward thinking and embracing the technology.
UPDATE: Site is now live with an intro video and a game to play. Take a look at the design tab for some more detail images/video.
