Luxembourg €2 CC 2013 "National Anthem of the Grand Duchy"

Luxembourg has just announced the design for this year €2 commemorative coin - it will be dedicated to the "National Anthem of the Grand Duchy". Originally, Luxembourg has planned to issue a coin dedicated to the "Change of Guard", however, the topic was changed. Unconfirmed sources say that the design was not approved and thus why the change of theme.

Do we have any updates on when this coin is going to be out? Some internet sources push the release date back to September/October from originally planned June/July timeframe.

:) Indeed... I thought this was the 2014 coin.... Now I notice it is the coin for this year.....

So they will have to think of something else next year.

Ar1us, that is 149 years ago, isn't it?

Ar1us, thanks for the information

The design is horrible as usual, but the historic importance (maybe not for Europe, but for Luxembourg) stands in the fact that the composer of the ''Ons Heemecht'' - used today as the national anthem of the Duchee of Luxembourg- wrote the music to it exactly 150 years ago (1864). The composer was Jean Zinnen.

Totally agree with Igor's words!

It's a shame for all the EU to have this kind of tings celebrated as "historical events of European importance" :-(

I have an idea: let's e-mail them our opinion on their coins. Does anybody know their e-mail address?

Bit of a joke at this stage

The Luxembourg Mint is clearly out of ideas for new 2 Euro commemoratives. Same goes to San Marino. The EU should really move and enforce their rules for these coins. A country has to demonstrate a strong reason to put a coin out, otherwise no coin at all shall be allowed. This way there will be fewer coins, but at least they will be dedicated to notable and meaningful events.

Give me 3 minutes... ;-)

I'm very disappointed. Ugly style par excellence !!!
