Monaco €2 Commemorative Coin 2011????

Many euro website are indicating that the Principality of Monaco this year, will issue its second 2-euro commemorative coin. On 8 July 2011, Prince Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock will get married and this coin will be dedicated to this occasion. According to current plans, the 2-euro commemorative coin will be released in summer 2011 - most of the website are reporting a mintage of 25,000 and that the coin will be available in proof only - some shops went a step further and are already pre-selling these coins with prices nearly €1,000

Hopefully soon we will confirm if this is just a rumor or not

it'll be good when this coins will be only PP but nominal price must be 100eur not more, and big problem in Monaco is that every their coins are from dealers, isn't possible buy coins for nominal price

The mintage was 100.000 . I do not know when and why it has been changed to 25.000 . The first idea was 40000 coins.

Yes the EU should set a lower limit - i would say 700 000

eg Malta EMU coin with 700 000 was enough for everyone and prices didnt go high


but mintage quanities is not the only thing that makes these coins expensive - look Finland 2004

unfair distribution methods also attribute to high prices

If you want to produce a coin may do so at least in the circulation of 500 000 pcs. Lower costs should be prohibited.

I hope this coin won't be issued as well... Cause I don't want to spend 1000€ for it; If they will issue it, it would be better if it wouldn't be proof version and the mintage should be much higher than 25.000... I really don't know why the mintage for monegasque coins is so low :S
