The visit of Day of the mint annual dutch mint coinshow is a requirement for any collector.
It remains indeed the predilection gathering place of coins collectors and professional dealers, in the Netherlands.

This annual KNM annual event starts by the sale of the “Day of the Mint” exclusive collectors, dice 9AM. Just like the previous year, many of coins dealers will be present and make a broad offer of coins, medal-tokens and paper money.
For the visitors, the entry is free of charge. The 2018 Day of the Mint topic will be “the last day of the Mint in the UTRECHT historic manufacturing building ”. Indeed, the next year the KNM moves to be established in a new industrial area of UTRECHT, more adapted to its industrial needs. It leaves the historical building that it occupied so far.
