This is actually the third euro coin depicting a dove. 2005 Finland was the first, but do you know the second? ;)

Greece 2010?!?

We're talking commemorative €2 coin, not collector pieces, right? Hmm, the one that Aditya showed was the only one that I could come up with, except that he was, once again, faster than me ;) So lemme check again ...

Seems that a small % of total mintage has been 'issued'. Saw couple of offers from dealers who have already got them, and they are really not expensive (below €10)...so we can expect them to be even cheaper once all the coins have been 'put into circulation'.. :)

I received my Monaco - UN coin yesterday (unc from roll, not the proof version!) and it looks good. :)

I'm still looking for the 2012 CC though, it's still bit expensive compared to 2011 issue...

Interesting. So which version is more common?

Let's see from a serious collector's point of view. ;D If I want to collect both the varieties from all grades, I have to get:

2 x UNC;
2 x BU (Taken out of the annual BU set of 2013);
2 x Proof.

Total = 6

Now if we add edge varieties (Type 'A' and Type 'B'), then there are six more. So 12 in total... ;)
