San Marino 2015: Dante Alighieri
« on: December 21, 2014, 02:56:10 PM »
In 2015 San Marino will honor the poet Dante Alighieri on a commemorative €2 coin. (By the way, Dante is also on the Italian €2 circulation coin, and will be on an 2015 commem from Italy too.) The San Marino piece will be issued in a coin card with a sleeve; the whole "pack" will cost about €20 ...

Later in 2015, San Marino plans to issue a second commemorative coin. No details known about that one yet.

Ah, good! And my sources told me that the second €2 commem will be about the 25th anniversary of the unification of San Mar---oops, Germany. :)

 :D :D :D

Are you perhaps forgetting that Dante rhymes with Marino in the South-Western dialect of a variant of Swahili? That makes them intimately connected!

Any idea if AASFN will ship both the €2 coins together or separately? I have (unconfirmed) news that they will be shipped separately once issued.

Well, looks more like her than that woman on that wedding 5 pound coin!

Received the Dante Alighieri coin today, quality looks better than previous issues. Just a coincidence that we talked about Kate Middleton earlier in this topic, she gave birth to the second royal baby today and I also received the coin on same day... :D

Try claiming at the office that you both have a new baby. If they fall for it, claim parental leave. :D

The second €2 commemorative from San Marino for 2015 (25 Years of Unification of Germnay) will be issued next month. I have seen at-least two different designs; no official announcement yet. Shall update as soon as we have a confirmation.

Issue price: €15.
