2019 complete!
« on: February 01, 2020, 01:51:51 PM »
Having just obtained the Finland 5c coin, I think I now have all coins for 2019 (by my definition, conveniently!).  By my calculations there are 267 coins, including variants - a few less than 2018.  See here: Euro coins from 2019

I can't think of a 'first' this year - perhaps it's the first year without any firsts...   Luxembourg continues to milk collection completers like myself by issuing three versions of each coin, and the 20c proof again has the symbols the wrong way round.

It is always a pleasure to look at your website, which I visit regularly.

In 2020, another country will start doing this.  :(

Some time ago someone sent a tweet to mintmaster Stephan Satijn about this. I do not know if he understood the problem as he only liked and retweeted it. Maybe in 2020 finally this mistake will be corrected.
