for Euro Coins and Banknotes Collectors
Add a Comment
Thank you Illioplius. Personally I was not aware of the Bundeslander series commemoration thematic. I had never noticed the relevant piece of info, although it is clearly stated, even in wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E2%82%AC2_commemorative_coins#German_...
On the other hand, I need obliged to defend Ctirad's option to discuss the subject in this Blog Spot: Least Liked CC coins may be Least Liked for several reasons; not only for their appearance.
For example, one is quite justified to hate low mintage coins, like the Monaco ''Grace kelly'', even though it is probably the coin with the most elegant look.
"German coins commemorate nothing."
"they could have shifted the current 2 euro programme by a year"
For your information, the year in which particular coin is issued is related to that state's presidency of the Bundesrat. So it is neither true that they commemorate nothing, nor that some shifts are possible.
"On the other hand, ECB must surely adopt a rule that when the Euro zone countries issue a common CC, no other CC are issued and not even the normal €2."
I don't find it a good idea. You all should understand that nobody forces you to collect all the commemorative coins issued. You do not have to collect expensive coins from Monaco, San Marino and Vatican; you do not have to collect common issues and so on. So be tolerant of other collectors who may want to collect also expensive coins and common issues. Once again: nobody forces you to collect all the coins issued. Collect only those you want to and do not appeal to some bans or prohibitions.
Only rule they should adopt in connection with common issues is, in my opinion, that common would be only theme whereas design will be special for each country.
And for Ctirad: you probably do not understand what is this blog post about – we talk about LEAST liked commemorative coins/pravdepodobne nerozumieš, o čom je tento blogový článok – hovoríme o NAJMENEJ obľúbených pamätných minciach.
You are absolutely right on that euroHobby... ECB should urgently issue rules on the matter.
I believe that collector coins should be in bullion metal (gold, silver) and intended as a merchandise produced by the mints. A mint (or a Central bank) can sell these items for a price multiple of their face value and even their actual metal value.
On the other hand, commemorative coins should commemorate an actual important event. These coins should be placed into circulation, 100% of them, as actual numisma, at face value! I'm sad to notice that the trend initiated by the microstates (Vaticano, San Marino) to produce non-bullion ''commemoratives'' annually and sell them to collectors at outrageous prices has been adopted by so many other countries nowadays.
On the other hand, it's a pity to see countries that have actual events to commemorate to ignore them, or issue bullion coins instead. I will give you another example (extra to Germany and the World Cup): 2010 was the 50th anniversary of the independence of Cyprus and they only issued a silver and a gold coin to commemorate the event.
Chris i agree with you - in fact i was very surprised that Germany didn't issue a 2 euro for world cup - they could have shifted the current 2 euro programme by a year
i think some countries are confusing the topics of 2 euro commemorative coins with that of collectors coins (gold and silver)
while on collectors coin you can put whatever you wish - i believe on 2 euro commemorative coins - only commemorative events/personalities/history should be minted
Germany 2006 (Bundeslander series) is a very coarse design.
I agree with most of you here, that the Luxembourg cc coins are frustratingly similar to each other.
All the LU CC are practically the same !
But indeed the worst ever is IT 2008....it's an unreadable magma !
