Got my hands on some nice stuff for the forum. Source may be mentioned as 'World of Coins' ;)
Interesting to see trimetallic collectors coins of Luxembourg.

Thanks for the news eurocion...good ideas, but poor designs on the trimetallic coins in my humble opinion.

If Im right, the last colour to use in the niobium coin is the pearl-blue...lets see of the castle series end the next year or continue using bi-colour niobium.

Best,

Fran.

The idea of this Unesco series I like, also because it mixes three different types of heritage. "The Family of Man" is definitely an interesting collection and exhibition. But I am not fond of that design - guess the coin cannot show any actual photos for copyright reasons, but empty frames instead? Hmm. The other two designs I find appealing.

Whether it was necessary to repeat the word "Unesco" (logo in the center, name on the right), I don't know. But that is a minor issue methinks. Cost will be more relevant ;) and I am sure I will not like the price tag ...

As for the portrait of the grand duke, I do not really mind that the same style is used for all of these coins. But the pieces where that portrait is limited to the pill or central part, with the ring being empty, look strange. Especially when, as in the case of the BCL coin, the other side is quite busy.

200 euros is what the 3 UNESCO coins cost, to be paid right now and you will be sent the coins when they are being issued in the next few years.

I have read (on another coin forum) that the mintage of the UNESCO coins will be 2000.

I do not know what the metal composition will be. Very curious about it. I suspect Niob will be used.

Not surprised by the low mintage numbers. BCL does it every year.

200 euros is what the 3 UNESCO coins cost, to be paid right now and you will be sent the coins when they are being issued in the next few years.

Can't find it listed on BCL's e-shop. Do we have to order it through e-mail or so? Asking to pay for the three coins together (with the last coin getting issued in 2020) is ridiculous!

Yes it's quite odd there is nothing online about it. Website Emuenzen has an order form online. Click here to download it.

As from Saturday, 21 April, the central bank (BCL) will sell the Koerich Castle silver-niobium coin. Maximum mintage 3,000 units (prooflike), produced by the Austrian Mint, price 90 euro.
