Commemorative 2 euro coincards
« on: October 28, 2008, 10:19:18 AM »
Hello,

Does anybody know a good website about newly released 'coincards'? I'm looking for information on which coincards are/have been issued and when?

By 'coincard' (or is it a Blister?) I mean a card containing a single 2 euro coin. For example Luxembourg's issue: http://2eurocoins.blogspot.com/2008/10/2008-luxembourg.html.

I already own some of them from Luxembourg, Spain, Austria, Finland and Germany.

Maybe someone has already assembled the information, but if not, here's how to do it:

Go here and click on Central Bank links (the very first entry). Euro country by Euro country, wade through the pages to the collector's offerings. Wade through the offers and note hits. Make a list of what you found and publish it here ;D to the sound of applause of all members.

Peter,

I actually started to do as you suggested and quite quickly realised why there isn't any single page holding the information I'm looking for. I couldn't find some of the cards I already have from the Central Banks pages and gave up. It makes me wonder how official these items actually are. Anyway, I took some photos from the ones I have and posted them to http://2eurocoincards.blogspot.com. Larger photos can be found from http://monetastic.ning.com. As you can see I do not have too many of them yet.

Anyone having info about other cards, or better pictures than the ones I've taken, please reply here or contact me directly. I would very much appreciate any further info. I'm not sure how many actually collects these cards but I certainly am interested in them.

Hi Tomi,
If the German language is intelligible to you, you could have a look at
http://www.emuenzen.de/forum/
Click: "Euromόnzen" and next "2 Euro Gedenkmόnzen". There you'll find a thread dedicated to all coinsets and coincards containing 2 euro commemoratives.

Have you tried asking this question to dealers in eBay for example?  IF you show interest that you want them, they may help you with the information, and if the price is good for you, then you can actually buy them.  Just my two yen thought ...

Thanks,
Miguel

Hi Tomi,

I was meaning to respond to this post sooner but these days I've been a little busy.
All this information is to the best of my knowledge.

There are 2 things here.
First is "coincards", some are official some are private issues.

an example of a private issue is the German and Austria one you have shown at http://2eurocoincards.blogspot.com/.

an example of an official issue is the Luxembourg coincards are issued by the Banque Centrale Du Luxembourg at a price of 9 euro each.

Secondly there are BU €2CC (these are what I will talk about here), they are similar to coin-cards except that they are not always plastic 11,5 cm x 8,5 cm cases.
