Well spotted, Angus. This is very amateurist. Someone at the mint needs to be fired.

Very interesting indeed. Is that the case with few sets only, or all the sets have such quality coins? In general, my opinion about Luxembourg euro coins is very positive as far as the quality goes (but not the design :D)

It is not the quality that is the problem here. Look at the marks on the coins. Only on the 20 euro cent coin the mintmastermark is to the right of the date and the lion mark to the left of the date. On all other coins it is the other way around.

Somewhat odd indeed. But at least both marks are there, you don't have any spelling errors ... a venial sin, I'd say. ;)

(From an unscientific look at eBay sales) I would guess that all the 20c coins have the symbols the wrong way round, but maybe there are some with them the right way round?  Probably not, there are only 1000 of them in the first place, after all.

By the way I didn't spot this myself, someone pointed it out to me.
