How come I don't see the Slovenia variety for sale? Sets only?

Mintage was only 400,000.
They sell already at about 20 to 25 euro at coin shows.
They were issued in separate rolls though, certainly not only in sets.

Zut! I thought only the Vatican pulled tricks like that :(. Anyway, I can tell myself now they don't circulate if there are so few of them. Thanks Bart. The Dutch version circulates. I got one from circulation yesterday.

Very lucky. My son lives in France and he hasn't seen them yet. Did you get the Slovenia variety?

@ Aidan,
Most Treaty of Rome 2 ? commemoratives can be had at face value or slightly higher. The Irish one is no exception. Only the Finnish and Portugese ones are somewhat harder to get.
And the Slovenian one hardly ever is found circulating. That one is really hard to get at face value.
All 17 different 2 ? Treaty of Rome commemoratives are in my possession. ;D

I am still waiting for a chance to get one. When a3v1 says 17 different he means 12 original euro countries, Slovenia and four more German coins with a different mint mark. I hear France is difficult to get also. My son, who lives in Paris, was unable to get a copy.

@ Peter,
On a German forum is a map posted by a member of Les Amis de l'Euro showing in which regions the French Treaty of Rome coin was put into circulation. Paris (75) was not among these regions but Hauts-de-Seine (92) was.

Is there an update on that map? My son lives in the Paris area. He's picked up one copy from circulation only. It's not like the French at all to starve Paris of something new...

@ Peter,
No updates of that map have shown up on any forum I am visiting.
On the other hand I have picked up several circulated French ToR commemo's in my home region (Utrecht/Amersfoort/Amsterdam area).
