Luxembourg to Issue Another €2 Commemorative in 2012?
« Reply #15 on: December 22, 2012, 07:04:54 AM »
The Royal Wedding commemorative was issued on 20th, that was quite surprising as it was previously told that it won't be issued before January end. Here's a pic of actual coin, taken from eBay.

That looks like a weird texture, always going to get weird coins that are taken from photos like that.

First I thought, odd design. :) But I guess that the technology used for this issue is similar to the "Minted Photo Image" that the KNM has used for some of its issues (see here for example). Have not seen the real thing yet though ...

Here is an image of four Royal Wedding coins which shows the different looks from the different angles. Should work without being logged in "over there". :) http://forum.eurobilltracker.com/download/file.php?id=4983  By the way, it seems that the various products (rolls, coincards, etc.) were not, or will not be, issued at the same time.

Still bizarre, shows what they want it to show I guess and it is a little different.

Yes, as of now I can't see any rolls/BU coin cards offered on BCL eShop. They were in hurry to get those coins released and everyone was worried about the doomsday ;D, some collectors were actually shocked to hear that the coins are out. :D It's anyway a money making business (you can't buy rolls for face value, they charge VAT on it) so whether it is released in 2012 or 2013, it hardly makes any difference...

The Royal Wedding commemorative was made available at BCL eShop few hours back (not in rolls but in set of 9 coins: 8 regular coins of 2012 and the commemorative, 5 sets for €45). Blame those crazy collectors ;D, it's no more available...

Ah, wait and see. :)  The central bank merely says it is "temporairement indisponible"/"temporarily unavailable". If it was actually gone, you would see "épuisé"/"sold out". Still, not cheap ...

The sets are available again, in case anyone is interested. ;)

Received the coin today..The design is still bad but at-least, the 3D kind of obverse looks good indeed! :)
