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. :(

I may be wrong here but my observation is that it's easier to get a BU coincard version of this coin rather than the loose unc coin. Of course the coin card costs more, but those are abundantly available on online platforms, not so with unc coins....

The UNC version has not yet been released. The mixed rolls of the Plant Health 2 euro coin will only be released at the end of this year or early 2021.

Good to know, thanks! So I was looking at the pre-sales....
