Robin van Persie's Headed Goal vs. Spain Turned into a Coin in the Netherlands

By taking his tally to 45 goals for his country, the Manchester United forward also became the first Dutch player to score in three consecutive World Cups. (AP Photo/Christophe Ena)

The Netherlands' World Cup run is still alive, but you can already celebrate their progress to the semi-finals with a commemorative coin showing Robin van Persie's headed goal against Spain.

That strike in the famous 5-1 win over the defending champions kick-started Louis van Gaal's campaign, and the Dutch have reached the semi-finals where they take on Argentina on Wednesday.

Royal Dutch Mint

For €9.95, you can now buy a coin depicting that RVP header, as produced by the Royal Dutch Mint. The Dutch crest is on the reverse.

In a limited-edition run, 6,000 of the coins have been produced.

Therefore, if you want one, you'll need to act a bit quicker than the Spanish defence.
