I need to go back, obviously, thanks! It's funny how some paintings that are famous are relatively small (the Mona Lisa for example) - you know there's a neat museum in Farmington, Connecticut called the Hill-Stead that has some great French impressionists and the DIA in Detroit is really under rated. Anyway, the Night Watch and some of those other Rembrandt paintings at the Rijksmuseum are so surprisingly (and pleasantly to me) large - it's at least 10 feet tall - and wider than that. Amazing! I totally didn't see any coins when I was there many years ago, I love it when I see coins in a museum.
When you stand in front of it it feels like you ar epeering into an alternate universe. The dutch were very serious about their coins and the museum as a decent display of some. The painting cover coins repeatedly.
