The Central Bank of Ireland today launched a limited edition coin set in celebration of the Irish hound which first appeared on Irish coins in 1928. This is the final coin set in the series celebrating animals which have appeared on Irish coinage and are synonymous with Ireland and its culture and heritage. Based on the original designs by the late sculptor and medallist, Percy Metcalfe, the first and second set featured the horse and salmon respectively. Each set in the series is complemented by a €15 silver proof collector coin. A €15 silver proof collector coin featuring the hound will be issued in October 2012.
The collector set, which has an issue limit of 17,000 units, is presented in a special display folder and contains each of the eight euro coins in uncirculated quality. The set is available to purchase from 6 January at a cost of €25 per set directly from the Central Bank of Ireland, Dame Street, Dublin 2. Alternatively orders can also be placed by calling 1890 307 607 (lo-call within Ireland) or downloading an order form from www.centralbank.ie.
