We assess the sample distribution of payments in the Netherlands using survey data for 1984-86. The payment pattern fits a lognormal distribution with peaks caused by the price tags of the purchased items. The results are used to simulate the use of coins and notes, which indicates a rather efficient denominational mix but a high degree of hoarding for the large bank notes.
