Luxembourg to Issue another €2 Commemorative Coin "Royal Wedding"

Fantasy Image


According to the euro blog Numismatica Visual, Luxembourg this October will issue another €2 commemorative coin dedicated to the marriage of the crown prince. This year Luxembourg has already issued two coins, a national one and the common one which was issued by all the eurozone countries. Luxembourg would be the first country to apply the new regulations regarding the issuance of 2 euro commemorative coins - starting from this month countries are permitted to issue 2 coins per year and a third one when a common issue is out. As soon as we have a verification of the above news we will re-inform you!


03 August 2012 - Yesterday, I sent an email to the Central Bank of Luxembourg to confirm me the news and today I got this reply;"Dear Customer, At the present time, we cannot confirm that a third commemorative 2-euro coin will appear again this year. We therefore call again wait a few weeks, see a few months! Kinds regards"

Which mint mark is that?

Also what is the date of issue of "change of Guards" coin, whose order form was just sent on this forum?

I am impressed how ugly it looks :S

the only nice thing is that it seems that this is a new technology for 2 euro coins but they used it for the wrong design
