First 2019-dated euro coin found in circulation

A 2019-dated 5 euro cent coin of Portugal has been found in circulation in Italy. It seems to be something of recent years that coins are being issued early. Panama and Australia have also already issued 2019-dated coins into circulation.

Interesting - Austrian mint too will issue the 2019 €5 collector coin in silver before Christmas and also the 2019 BU set..Many countries have already issued 'Year of Pig' collector coins dated 2019...None of these coins are for circulation, though.

IIRC, the majority, if not all millennium commemoratives were issued before the year 2000 started. Nevertheless, my favourite oops-"dated" coin is the Spanish 25 centimos 1937, marked EL AÑO TRIUNFAL, the year of the triumph. The Spanish civil war ended two years later.

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

French Mint has also issued BU set containing 2019 dated coins. Would be interesting to see which of those denominations are issued for circulation next year!
