Dutch town issues its own local money

Local money can be found all over the world. Soon also in the Dutch town of Alphen aan den Rijn. Denominations of 5, 10 and 25 alpha's (cool name!) will be issued which can be spend at selected shops in town or in exchange for particular services provided in the city. This is of course done to promote the local economy. The 'banknotes' will get all the basic security features and are traceable.

Looking at the images of the alpha's below I got the sense they might've been inspired by the recent Norwegian designs.
