Amazing as ever.

Amazing but expensive... ;)

Until today, I had not heard of the term Anthropocene. Better late than never...

Stopped collecting the €25 coins when they went from bimetallic to multicolor. But this design I like!

...And I started collecting them exactly at the same time. ;) I got the 2013 issue (Tunnel Construction) via eBay and then I couldn't resist getting the future issues as they were just too beautiful!

A little birdie ;) tells me that the coin will be issued on June 6th...No idea about the issue price though, expect about 10% higher than last year's issue price...

Birdie is rightie. Both the €25 Anthropocene piece and the €3 Shark coin will be issued on that day. However, after a lot of criticism last year, the mint separated the two sales - the silver/niobium piece needs to be pre-ordered. Issue price €76.80 ...

My friend in Austria just pre-ordered mine :)

Yesterday, a kosmologie coin came up for auction at my club - just. C$90! I didn’t buy it because I already have one. But that was indeed a steal!

The coin is sold out now!

It may be noted that the actual issue date is June 6. Dispatch is expected to start on same date.

Then again, a dealer in Germany (who I regularly buy from) charges precisely those €76.80 too. So if I wanted that coin, I could get it at the same price that the Austrian Mint wants from "end consumers". :)

I am not talking about benefits of being in EU... ;)

Just curious to note, how much does Austrian mint charge to those who buy in bulk, any idea?

This €25 coin was available on mint's website for over 24 hours, so I think they gave a fair chance to those who wanted to buy it... 8)
