As for the euro, see this table. New names are still being added. This circle will be round one day. Please help me achieve that by asking your trading friends to join the circle.

For Indian coins, bilateral trading is more appropriate. I get my Indian new issues from two active and energetic members while helping them with euro coins. We have enough traders on the site to make such arrangements and they are in all continents. More in this thread. The real problem is not finding partners but postal rules and (lack of) service.

Helping other forum members with new coins issued at face value

As far as I know, WoC is the only place where members offer euro coins for face value. European collectors will usually trade coin rolls as 1:1, but when it comes to selling coins, things change drastically ::) Many times they ask twice or thrice the face value and when you add shipping costs to it, you have a big amount to pay. I must say thanks to Figleaf (The Netherlands), izotz(Spain), Manjarin(Portugal) who have helped me a lot in expanding my euro collection :) chirsild (Germany) has also promised me to get the new German issues this year onwards, which I must appreciate.

Since I have been getting new Indian commemoratives for face value from my contact in RBI recently, I have tried to offer them for face to other Indian members, as dealers tend to ask notorious prices for them. I'll try my best to get the future issues from RBI, and offer them to members. My trader friends from other countries will anyway get them someday ;)

The circle is still getting rounder. With reps in Cyprus and Slovakia, we now cover 10 out of 17 countries. France and Italy should be easy, but there may be a language barrier.

I have had quite a few requests for the €2 Erasmus. Here is the situation.

The fancy versions, in coin cards or proof, are available everywhere at €15-40. The circulation version was sent to a few distribution centres. Some rolls were "liberated" and can be bought for €70 (nominal value €40). Most went on to banks and post offices, where they will be mixed with other €2 coins and stuffed in ATMs or disbursed to window clerks where such people still exist. In the city where I live (pop. 122 000) there is no post office left and banks don't handle cash.

The big flood of coins ordered by shops and dealers is expected next week only. Coins will arrive in bags, not rolls. Expect the current price of €4.50 to come down, probably after a couple of weeks. So, don't despair, they are on their way but not quite yet.

The proof version on the ebay is more expensive than KMS proof with this 2 euro in on set which all can buy today in mint www.knm.nl for ~60E .

I'll be in Wicklow (Ireland) by the end of next week. Let me know if you want me to look out for Irish euro coins. Also, are there any coin dealers in the Dublin area that you know of or have experience with?

FIGLEAF say:
"....France and Italy should be easy, but there may be a language barrier......"
 >:(Why? Today there is google translator...I am italian.
Do I understand well; for example, in Italy I can take the currency from roll at face value.
I await news from you.

SUPER, gaf. Yes, you understand perfectly well. The ring is all about coins available at face value. Always glad to be proven wrong. Today, the ring is a little bit more complete. Grazie mille davvero.

Missing cc 50 and € 2.00 (only2002)

What he meant to say that often it happens that French and Italian collectors (and Greek to some extent) are not familiar with English language which is the auxiliary language ;) So it may happen that they do not understand your message and take it in a wrong way. (Has happened with me before when I was swapping with a very good Italian friend). You need not worry, your English is quite good and understandable :)

hello,
I already knew and just wanted to clarify.
Since this is a site in english, it is clear that you at least understand a bit, there's always our friend google translator.
Personally I would prefer not to name any country especially here.
However, all ok.
GAF ;)

Ireland? Most common Irish coins are those dated 2002 ;D..and as for new map coins, some of the denominations exist only in sets or have very low mintage..You have to be very lucky to get them in change.. ::)

Nice to see one name for Greek € coins in the list!  :)
