King Willem-Alexander is immortalised on a euro (photo)

The new Dutch euro coin featuring king Willem-Alexander was presented in The Hague on Thursday.

The coin was designed by photographer Erwin Olaf and features the new king in profile. It will come into circulation at the beginning of next year.

The last king to feature on a Dutch coin was Willem III, who died in 1890.
