Lithuanian €1.5 Coins
« on: December 25, 2020, 03:13:29 PM »
Added these nice looking Lithuanian €1.5 coins to my collection recently. Call it an early Christmas gift to myself ;). All the coins are struck in base metal and were issued for €2 or so I think.

€1.5 [2017]: Kaziuko Muge

One missing coin from this €1.5 denominated series I am particularly looking for is the one they recently issued with Covid-19 theme: Coin of Hope. Hopefully, will be able to get it soon....

The first coin (Casimir's Fair) looks cool in my opinion!

Nice coins Aditya. How did you get them in India? Directly ordered from the EU mint?

Thanks! I got these through a Germany based dealer. I have bought directly from Bank of Lithuania before [the very first Lithuanian euro BU and Proof sets] but they didn't accept payments through credit cards [but do ship the coins worldwide] then...Had a forum member to make the payment on my behalf and then I paid him through PayPal. So that was a bit tedious exercise...Never tried it again as I found alternate sources for Lithuanian coins. :) They now have a dedicated e-shop to buy the Lithuanian euro coins [see here, the €1.5 coins are not listed] and credit card payment is also accepted now, so may be I will try that route again but shipping cost could be an issue...So getting them from German friends is still likely to be easier and cheaper.
