even though the EC allowed Luxembourg to mint 1,400,000 the Central bank of Luxembourg decided to mint 700,000 only

i also think they should swap the faces round the other way as its commemorating 100 years since the death of william and not henri and it should have the country name written in luxembourgish instead of french like the other ones

The word "Luxembourg" exceed the inner circle and ends between the 12 euro stars of the outer circle.

They could/should have problem with the common criteria for commemoratives coins from EU Commission.

but f.e. coin 2012 isn't bad, 2 portraits and church/buildings

to avoid the problem near the country name i would put the below profile the same size as the fonts for country name - so would be something like this

@LUXEMBOURG

where @ would be the duke profile taken from this image

they could still produce nice coins if they wanted - they could put a small image of the Grand duke instead taking half the area - something similar to Netherlands 2011

Comment by Ctirad on December 3, 2011 at 11:29

for Lux is very hard to made nice coin-theme because everywhere must be Grand Duc, and optimal there is die/born and photo GD

Comment by euroHOBBY on December 3, 2011 at 11:22

i think because it is commemorating the 100 years since his death
