The winning design made with 100% with free software, mainly Python. The design is amazing, the Queens head is made up of names of the architects based upon the occurrences in a yahoo searches. In the end the artist Stani Michiels had to collaborate closely on location together with the technicians of the Royal Dutch Mint (coin factory).
