Portugal 2017: 150th anniversary of Raul Brandão
« on: December 02, 2016, 03:11:21 PM »
In 2017 Portugal is going to issue a 2 euro commemorative coin for the 150th anniversary of writer, journalist and military officer Raul Brandão. For whatever reason on the design an accent on the U was included in his first name that should not be there.

May be the actual struck coin will show his name correctly?

I'm sure it will. :)  Hmm, Raúl (with the accent) looks Spanish to me. But the designer is Portuguese. Oh well ... While I like the way the tilde was "built into" the second A, the hyphenation - two lines for a relatively short last name! - looks a little weird to me. Still an OK design.

Where are you finding these matte images? They make me think I have a film over my eye.

The mistake was indeed corrected. The coin will be issued on 24 October. 500,000 pieces will be minted in UNC, 10,000 in BU and 10,000 in Proof quality.
