San Marino: Two Commemorative €2 Coins in 2016
« on: September 15, 2015, 05:13:40 PM »
The Numismatic and Philatelic Office of San Marino will issue two €2 commemorative next year:

1. 550th anniversary of the death of Donatello;

2. 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare.

None of these can be had for face, expect issue price to be €15 (or more) like this year...

Designs, issue dates etc. are not known yet. Shall update once I have more information. :)

Here's the Donatello coin. Design by Matt Bonaccorsi.

Interesting to note that San Marino too has reduced the mintage of €2 commemorative coins. This year, it's only 85,000 of each issue, earlier it used to be 110,000 - 120,000...

The Philatelic and Numismatic Office of San Marino (AASFN) has started delivery of this commemorative to its registered members who had reserved their copy earlier. I got my piece last week. :)
