The Coin Conference

Amsterdam

I found the conference very engaging and interactive. As a first time participant who is not a current technical expert but more of a central bank communication expert, this conference has opened my eyes to the many opportunities on the currency communication space.

Monday 17 October

Workshop 1

Workshop 2

09:00 – 12:00

Coins for Cash: What the Public Wants

This workshop is part of a series organised by the MDC’s Customer Task Force to gain a clearer understanding of the key issues affecting the different stakeholders for coins, namely national authorities (central banks), retailers/dealers and end-users (the public). The workshop – organised by Dieter Merkle of Schuler Group and also convenor of the MDC Taskforce – will bring together national authorities with others involved in the coin cycle to discuss the key issues and latest priorities for circulating coins, including their role in the cash cycle in times of crisis and the needs of the public.

The workshop, which is free of charge, is open to central banks and active Customer Task Force members only.

13:30 – 17:00

Coins and the Environment

Coins have a unique place in the payment industry. Unlike banknotes, or even plastic cards, their long life means the resources used in their manufacture can be spread over decades. The denominational structure and the choice of materials has an important effect on their environmental impact, but also the optimum performance occurs when coins are recirculated close to their point of use. This seminar will focus on all of these decisions, as well as the actions of producers to reduce their own environmental impact. It will also put coins in context of the wider cash cycle including end of life.
