San Marino €2 Botticelli coins in Circulation

The micro-state of San Marino last year issued a €2 commemorative coin to commemorate the 500th years since Sandro Botticelli passed away. Usually all the €2 commemorative coins from San Marino are sold directly to collectors and not put in circulation. However, now some members are reporting that they are finding this coin in circulation! If you found one you can write your experience here.

Leandros, this 3rd Botticelli you found is indeed in really good conditions !

Do you still have the 2nd Botticelli, we swapped? It could be interesting to see pictures also of that coin.

The quality is much unlike Italian coins.

All coins that are minted in Italy ware an 'R' signature

Leandros has been very lucky. Her coin appears to be genuine.
Can someone confirm that this coin was also minted in Italy, like all other SM coins?
What are the mint marks of Italian mint?

it looks almost like new

I had the same impression of all of you when I saw this 1st Botticelli: too bad to be a coin from 2010!

That's why I thought to a robbery or something like. But afterthat I found the 2nd Botticelli, which was in much better conditions. This coin is now by Leandros (I swapped it for a ToR Slovenia... :-)!

Leandros just told me he's going to publish his pics this evening.

(Thanks to euroHOBBY for uploading the pics)
