San Marino Euro Coin 2012 "Ten Years of Euro Cash" €2 Commemorative Coin

San Marino next year will dedicate its annual 2 euro commemorative coin to the 10 years of euro banknotes and coins - the same theme as the common design which will be released next year by the 17 eurozone countries. It remains unclear if San Marino will feature the common design or else has a design for its own. This is the first time that a country follows the same theme as the common one. The coin is planned for April 2012 - and also for the first time San Marino will issue the 2 euro commemorative coin in proof version, however, this coin will be sold in a set together with the standard coins also in proof - this is is expected to be out in October.

 

Updated 20.Feb.2012

According to the Les Amis de l'Euro website an officer at the European Central Bank had confirmed that the San Marino €2 Commemorative coin 10 years of cash will have the same design as that issued by all the euroarea - the only difference will be in the fonts used to show the country name - according to the same officer they will appear as they are on the San Marino standard coins

The TYE is the common commemorative (cc) edition for the eurozone countries. The San Marinese TYE is just a national cc coin that shares the same design.

This has a particular implication: While the eurozone countries are allowed to issue independently another 2012 cc coin if they wish, San Marino is not allowed to do that, since THIS is considered to be their 2012 national cc coin.

This nice coin represents quite a weird problem for us € collectors! :-)

Many of us don't collect coins from Microstates, but almost everybody collect 2€CC from EU members. In particular, we all collect the different national versions of the euro zone common issues (ToR, EMU, TYE). Now we have an 18th edition of TYE, from a country which is OUT of the EU, but IN the euro area. Don't forget that we have also a (slightly different) 19th edition from Romania, a country which is IN the EU, but OUT of the euro area.

What € collectors will do? We're going to collect both of them? SM but not RO? none of them?

San Marino

The Euro-sign in the centre of the coin shows that the Euro has become an element of particular importance in Europe as well as all over the world as the Euro evolved to a global player in the international monetary system in the last 10 years. The design elements around the Euro-symbol on the coin express the importance of the Euro to the people, to the financial world (ECB tower), to trading (ships), to industry (factories), to the energy sector and research and development (wind power stations). It was created by Helmut Andexlinger who is a professional designer at the Austrian Mint.

The artist's initials, AH, appear below the image of the ECB tower.

Issuing volume: 130 000 coins

I agreed with Ar1us and Luca.

In the past also Hungary, Cyprus and Romania issued commemorative coins quite similar to the 2007 and 2009 eurozone common commemoratives. This year Poland issued a commemorative quite similar to the common face of the regular 2€. As in those cases, I think SM will issue a coin quite similar but not identical to the 2012 common design.

about design, I think too. the same design not-only theme
