Belgium 2020: International Year of Plant Health
« on: August 07, 2019, 11:01:10 AM »
In February 2020 Belgium is going to issue a 2 euro commemorative coin for the International Year of Plant Health. 600,000 pieces of the coin will be released into general circulation. It is the first time since 2016 that  a Belgian commemorative coin will also be released into general circulation.

I am glad that Belgium will finally issue a 2 euro commemorative coin again into general circulation. It is a very bad theme though.

I am also glad that Belgium finally issues 2 commemoratives into actual circulation. That's what they were meant for. Sadly, the other 2 will not.
But I guess, little progress is better than none at all.

Still a pretty flimsy excuse for a commemorative.

Personally, I do not wish nettles good health :-X

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

As for the theme or occasion, well, why not. But the design ... is simply a copy of the IYPH logo. :(
