France 2016: UEFA Euro 2016
« on: December 26, 2015, 06:55:47 AM »
I just saw few pre-sales of French 2 coin to be issued next year commemorating UEFA Euro 2016. Is this issue officially confirmed? I can guess that French mint won't miss the opportunity to produce a whole lot of coins on this occasion ;), but I can't find any information on French mint's website.

The party's over but now the coins come marching in. An incredibly pristine find.

Great find! Would have been even more delightful had France won the tournament... :)

Knowing that sports euphoria give the economy a lift, I would say Portugal winning was more efficient. ;D

Over here in Germany, attention and interest were somewhat limited by the way, and pretty much regardless of whether La Mannschaft performed well or not. The places set up for "public viewing" had disappointing ticket sales - could have been due to the lousy weather, of course. ::) Maybe it was because of the unusually large number of participating teams (yes, I know Iceland was refreshing in several ways ...), maybe because we already have the Champions League and Europa League for "regular" club teams, dunno. Will be interesting to see whether that could be different with the World Cup being in Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022.
