Coins commemorating Robin van Persie's Netherlands header 'sell out'

Coins commemorating Robin van Persie's diving headed goal for the Netherlands against Spain reportedly sell out within hours of them going on sale.

Robin van Persie's impressive headed goal for the Netherlands against Spain at the World Cup has been commemorated via a special edition coin, which have since sold out.

The Manchester United striker's diving header helped his nation shock the reigning champions Spain with an opening group game 5-1 victory in Brazil.

After his goal, 6,000 coins depicting an outline of Van Persie's body as he dives to head the ball were created and sold for €10, but all were snapped up within hours of them going on sale, according to the Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, Van Persie remains a doubt for tonight's semi-final against Argentina due to a stomach bug.
