Quote from: davidrj on January 04, 2015, 08:50:09 PMSo, anyone suggest the first commemorative coin intended for circulation?I'm thinking milled, I understand some Roman issues could be considered such
Quote from: <k> on January 04, 2015, 09:54:25 PMThe commemorative florins were an interesting feature of Australian numismatics.In recent years, circulation commemoratives have become very common in Australia. To my knowledge, they involve, though not necessarily every year, the following denominations: 20c, 50c, $1 and $2. How many commemorative types of each denomination are typically issued each year? Have there ever been any $5 circulation commemoratives? Of course, Australia has also had some circulating states/territories commemoratives - how many, I can't remember, though I think that each series was limited to a single year.
Quote from: Figleaf on January 04, 2015, 11:18:32 PMThat depends on what you call milled. I would define it as struck by machines (in a mill), rather than struck by hammer. That would make especially the low dominations of the Ausbeute (mine exploitation) and Segen des Bergwerks (blessing of the mines) coins of Braunschweig a good contender.
Quote from: <k> on January 06, 2015, 11:54:14 AMI was looking for a similar Wikipedia page on New Zealand circulating commemoratives, malj1, but I can't find one. Do you know NZ's policies?
Quote from: <k> on January 06, 2015, 11:54:14 AMDoes your country regularly issue circulating commemoratives?
QuoteIf so, in which denominations, and how many issues per year (usually) of each denomination?
Quotedoes each euro zone member have a similar policy?
