This issue celebrates the 70th birthday of one of the world's greatest ever footballers (soccer players), Johan Cruyff. It is the first issue in a series highlighting sports icons.

Hendrik Johannes "Johan" Cruijff (April 25, 1947 – March 24, 2016) was a Dutch professional football player and coach. Regarded by many as Europe's first true football superstar, Cruyff is often mentioned alongside the pair widely considered the finest to have played the game, Pele and Maradona. During his playing career, he represented AFC Ajax (Amsterdam), FC Barcelona, Los Angeles Aztecs, Washington Diplomats, Levante and Feyenoord. He won the Ballon d'Or three times, in 1971, 1973, and 1974, and was the most famous exponent of the football philosophy known as Total Football. Cruyff led the Netherlands to the final of the 1974 FIFA World Cup and received the Golden Ball as player of the tournament. At the 1974 finals, he executed a move that subsequently was named after him, the "Cruyff Turn". After retiring from playing in 1984, Cruyff became highly successful as manager of Ajax and later Barcelona.

Due to Johan Cruyff's popularity in Europe, every single coin - in all alloys and qualities - sold out quickly from the Dutch Mint.
