We have some.  6  of them, from different ships, different sailings and we mounted them on a plaque and they are hanging in our kitchen and others we use as coasters.

I have many with one that I think is somewhat unique.  It shows the "old logo" with the inscription "Celebrating the greatest guests in the world....The Members of the Mariner Society".

 

I have at least one of the tiles that honor Rotterdam VI and Amsterdam.  These will only become more valuable as the years pass.

I have quite a few and a couple of unique ones too for HAL, tile wise for a couple of their emigrant ships the Waterman and the Groote Beer, but I have the *Anchor* tile versions, there was one with the anchor  on the tile and one without the anchor on it. I have a couple for the Nieuw Amsterdam for a Asia Pacific Explorer Cruise. an Anchor Version tile for the Volendam. And a group shot of the rest of my tiles

I was not aware that they produced tiles for those two ships.  Looking at your collection, there are some that I recognize and I have.

 

I have a tile that I think is unique.  It has a magnet on its back with the previous logo of HAL occupying the most space on its surface.  It's wording:  "Celebrating the greatest guests in the world"   "The Members of the Mariner Society".  I have it on the side of my file cabinet and see it every time I sit at my desk to use my computer.  No memory of when I received the tile.  

 

I also have a "Farewell Commemorative Cruise, M. S. Statendam, September, 21, 2015" tile that is larger than all of the others that HAL produced.  

 

Some HAL cruisers have been more imaginative than I ever was with the use of these tiles.  I cruised with a woman who used the tiles to cover the coffee table in her living room.
