This seems hard to find unless you actually put the French name in google. The item number is too small to read so I asked a seller of the French copy on Bricklink for the information and it is 102705.

Some Dutch scans and evidence of a Dutch Lego coin promo.

Also provides download links on Usenet but requires payment if you don't have access already. My advice is just to search for "lego german drama" on Youtube to find these. The cassette covers are cool.

2019 Update: I actually own three of these coins. They are just smaller than the palm of my hand (I'm an adult male) and extremely light weight and made from plastic. I felt they were a disappointment really. The only way you got these was by responding to an ad in the Summer 1989 Dutch newsletter, De Lego Krant.

The below resource briefly describes this but shows the ad. Caution: It is in Dutch and I do happen to have the issue, scanned, this came from.

I was also able to get a couple of these from a very nice seller on Bricklink awhile back. I agree that they aren't nearly as nice as the picture made them seem. The coin really looks like it has some heft in the image; it looks like a real metal coin. Hats off to the photographer for making it look so good! Even so, they're a nice display piece and I was glad they didn't cost an arm and a leg to buy and ship. I'm going to get one of those really nice coin cases to display them in and no one needs to know they're just plastic, hahaha. :pir_laugh2:

I wonder if washing them in liquid dish soap like you would cicis would actually make them shine as if they were new and real gold?

I'm afraid the paint would flake off, to be honest. I've washed some of the old tiny gold coins that way and the paint came off to varying degrees, it was almost gone one some coins. (I suspect the early years of gold coins wasn't quite as good as the later ones were, but I've been careful to use just regular water, if anything, ever since.)
