Peter,
Perhaps you should have added that the Circulation version is in silver clad copper.

Later this month, I will be in Cyprus. I'd be happy to go shopping for other members. Is there some kind of mint sales office in Nicosia?

The €5 Max Havelaar will be issued on 17th May. There will be three versions:

  • Circulation version @ €5, incuse lettering
  • "€5" silver proof version @ €32,95, relief lettering
  • "€10" gold proof version @ €277,95, relief lettering

Please let me know if you want any of these. If you want the gold version, I'll have to ask pre-payment.

It's almost 17th May and you'll never get them cheaper!

Got mine today - the base metal version of the Havelaar coin, that is. Thank you, Peter! The design is interesting; the portrait of Queen Beatrix they use an interesting relief technology, similar to a latent or multiview image. Neat. The other side is well done too, although I would have preferred the "hand written" text to be a little less miniaturized. But the pen or quill "hitting the spot" is a good idea ...

Thank you for your offer, Peter. As I don't usually collect that type of conmemorative coins (although I have a few of them that I found interesting) I didn't ask it from you.

But I heard that it could be bought at face value from the mint, and I couldn't help buying it. Best of all is that I was not charged any shipping expense. I received mine by regular post (not registered letter), so it is always a risk, but I was lucky.

Some friends of mine had no problem with this. They set a maximum amount of 2 pieces per client, which I find enough.

You may find it here :

I didn't find an option to translate it into English, but I had no problem with the shopping.

The Spanish version is here, FYI. ;D

Seriously, before the "relaunch" the KNM website also had an English version. But that was not updated as frequently as the Dutch version anyway, and I guess they simply did away with it. Peter sent my Havelaar piece along with a bunch of coins, so this extra one did not make any difference postage-wise, I suppose. By the way, the coin cards have become better - used to be that the transparent cover was only on one side while the other side of the coin was open, exposed to fingers, etc. Now both sides are protected or covered ...

I am still hoping to get people in more countries interested in exchanging new euro issues. So what if the postage is extra? The great reactions and the nice coins you get in return are ample compensation.

BTW, I still have some copies of this and "older" euro pieces...

I am always interested in new issues.  However, I don't have any Euros to swap and most of the stuff I do have to swap, nobody wants.
That is the price I pay for collecting mostly junk  :)

Austrian tokens (and US transportation and tax tokens) are OK with me. Let me know what you want.

I now have WoC trading partners for new euro issues from Germany, Austria, Portugal and Spain. Please let me know if you want me to intermediate to get on their trading list. I cover the Netherlands and welcome members of WoC. Are there people from other euro countries among our new members who can help building the trading new issues network?

I'm still not sure about the euro collector coins.No doubt many of them are nicely designed and have some nice themes,but at the end,the list of such collector coins is very large;even if we consider only those coins which were issued for face value.So right now,I have decided to collect only Portuguese euro collector coins,along with commemorative €2 coins (by type),hoping that my salary amount will be a decent number :D

BTW,I know some very good trading partners from following countries,let me know if you need their contact details.I have been trading with them for about 2 years now and they are very reliable :) Those countries are:

Belgium,Italy,Germany,Slovenia,Finland,Greece,Portugal,The Netherlands,Spain..

Thank you! As far as I am concerned, I got the Estonian circulation coins from a fellow collector here in DE, but your offer has been duly noted for future use. ;)
