I can't tell you for sure but when I was in Amsterdam in March and August about every coffeeshop I went to (and damn I must have hit most of them hehe) had prices listed and sold anything for both Guilders and Euros. I think you should be safe bringing Euros or Guilders. Even though the official switch-over date is New Years, there is a grace period after the first for Guilders. If you will be there just for New Years and a little after you will probably be best with Guilders as machines may not be ready for Euro coins right away. I haven't actually used anything coin-operated other than a cigarette machine on my last couple of trips so they may well have switched a lot of those over too. I'm sure a local will chime in and fill you in on more details or tell you I'm all wrong :) but I think I have the basics down. I'll be there over New Years my self and am bringing Guilders.Craig "DedBud"
