Well for San Marino, issuing of euro coins is just business
just look at all the 2 euro commemorative coins issued by San Marino - most of them commemorate the birth/death of famous Italians with little if any connection to San Marino
I'm surprised that they are able to come up with another eight different things about San Marino...
Perhaps they just got tired of old ones.
I don't think is true. I cannot find any announcement at all regarding San Marino redesigning their coins anywhere.
all subscribers with San Marino AASFN had received the numismatic programme for 2017 and near the standard coins 2017 they wrote that they will have a new design
Bad luck. I'm such a subscriber and that is not written on the 2017 programme I received
you can see it here
Brilliant uncirculated divisional coin set with new national sides
I have enough reliable information: the print run will be like that of the previous series, which is about 35,000 pieces. Perhaps 1,000 pieces more
So very very low compared to the huge demand...
