How Many Heads of States Can Fit on a Coin?

At least six: A new coin issued by Luxembourg's Central Bank features all Luxembourgish heads of state of the Nassau-Weilburg dynasty starting with Grand Duke Adolph via Grand Duke Wilhelm IV, Grand Duchess Marie-Adélaïde and Grand Duchess Charlotte all the way to Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duke Henri. Purchasing the special edition commemorative coin would cost you 10 euros. You can also spring for the "Belle épreuve" box set containing special editions of five 2015 coins produced with the image of Grand Duke Henri, for a cost of 95 euros. 

More info about these and all other coins newly minted this year at Wort in English.

Update: This one goes to the Dutch...
