Netherlands 2001 Guilders Silver Stamp  

Issue date 25 September 2001 

On 25th September 2001 The Netherlands issued a very interesting stamp, made of a thin piece of solid silver, and minted (not printed) by the Royal Dutch Mint in Utrecht.  The stamp is self-adhesive.  It has the face value of 12,75 Guilders and is intended for registered mail.  It is the first time ever this stamp minting technique has been applied.  As the Netherlands converted to the Euro by January 2002, it is also the last Dutch stamp issued in Guilders, and neither is it combined with the Euro.
