The Netherlands issued two different starter kits, intended to educate its citizens about the euro. One contained one of each coin and was distributed in a card, for free to the citizens of the Netherlands. Packaged, mint condition cards have since become collector items. Additional bags of assorted Euro coins could be purchased to familiarise oneself with them. These bags contained €11.34 worth of coins and sold for 25 guilders, which was the same as the value of the coins.
