Dutch town Westland to issue its own 'money'

For some reason a lot of cities, villages, states and provinces are issuing their own local money these days. It's not actually money to be honest: they are more like local coupons which you can use at certain selected shops in the area. 

It does however give the issuing city a chance to advertise its local pride and glory on a collectible piece of 'money'. The reason I mention this, is because I just read that the area I grew up in is also about to issue its own local 'banknotes'.

The area I'm speaking of is called Westland and is most famous for its horticulture in greenhouses, growing flowers and vegetables which are sold all over the world. It also hosts the largest Flower Auction in the world. So it's no wonder local people are proud of this and it's also no surprise that the local currency, the "Watermunt" or Water Coin, displays vegetables and greenhouses.
