In 2002 Italy switched to using the euro in circulation. Any comments?

The year date on the L.500 silver coin issued beginning in 1958 is on the edge.

Thank you. So that's why I couldn't see it.

Here you see the reverse design of the 1997 1000 lire coin.



Below you see the reverse design from 1998 onward. The map has changed. Why?

Apparently, to show Liechtenstein. ;D

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I'm expelling you from the European Union.  >:(

The 1997 design showed the pre-1990 "West Germany" joined to the Netherlands. The 1998 design showed the correctly enlarged Federal Republic.

At least they did the right thing and covered most of the UK with a cloak of silence. ;)  Yeah, it is odd that in 1997 a designer would not know about what happened in 1990. At least this is about as amusing as misspelled country names (e.g. Chiie) on coins ...
