Germany Euro Coins 2013 "50 Years of Franco-German Friendship" €2 Commemorative Coin Just Out




Germany Euro Coins - France and Germany right now are in celebration mood as the Pact of Elysee is 50 years old. To commemorate this they have decided to issue a joint 2 euro commemorative coin. This is also the first time in the history of the euro to have a common issue between some member states; in the past common issues were only allowed if it was issued by all the states.


The German and French 2 euro coins have the same design, only the French coin will have RF on it for Republique Francaise whereas the German one will have D for Deutschland - they will also have different mint marks.


The coin from Germany is out today , 22nd January 2013. Germany minted a total of 11 million coins;

Mint Mark A 2,200,000

Mint Mark D 2,231,000

Mint Mark F 2,640,000

Mint Mark G 1,540,000

Mint Mark J 2,310,000

France minted 10 million and thus the total issuance volume of this joint coin is 21 million.

So Germany has minted 11 million coins, 19 million less than 30 million originally announced. Could it be that the Baden-Württemberg coin will have lower mintage as well?
