Just for clarification the euroHOBBY website is not selling this coin. The San Marino numismatic shop will be selling the coin for the above mentioned price to its customers. If you wish to obtain the coin for that price write to the San Marino numismatic shop however usually it takes some months/year until someone is accepted on their customers' list.
