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.
