Italy 2011 €2 Commemorative Coin: The 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy

 

The inner part of the coin shows, at the centre, three Italian flags in the wind, representing the three past 50th
anniversaires - 1911, 1961 and 2011 - which illustrate a perfect link between generations: this is the logo of the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy.

 

Issuing volume: 1 million coins

very disappointing design. italy used to have very abstract designs for their commemorative coins. this is very boring. looks like aladdin is coming on flying carpets.. :o)
I was thinking that Malta CC is the ugliest but this is on same level.

I contacted the Mint of the Italian Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello Stato s.p.a. on the exit of the 2 euro commemorative 2011.
Answer:
We confirm the Numismatic issues that emissions will be minted by Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello Stato in
the year 2011.
The information provided relates only to the themes selected for emissions, not being released the program we have not yet any data relating to dates and quantities.
Here program in italian and program in english

Very boring design... They could have done it much better.. I'm dissappointed :(

I don't like very much this design, I prefer the photo of this logo

 

I'm worried about the mintage: only 1 million! I hope 10 millions or more like 2004/5/6...
