2003 coins

Postby bhoeyb » Mon Feb 24, 2003 9:27 pm

Yesterday, I've received my first 2003 coin at a shop. It was a Belgian 20c.
Who has found more? I've heard about 2003 2c from The Netherlands and 2003 20c from Germany.

Why does it cost so much ?
I payed my Belgian set of 2002 onle 16EUR, and the Finnish set of 2002 22EUR!
Why does the 2003 set has to cost 50EUR ????

Guess it's because the rare 1c and 2c coins.
Maybe you bought your 2002 kit so early that the prices for those coins weren't very high yet?
And also, there probably are less 2003 coins made, we don't really need that many new coins only a year after the release of all the new coins.

ah, this is not the official price ?

Someone bought my Suomi 2002 set in Finland, for the official price of 22EUR.
If I would sell it now, I think I would get a lot more for it ! (especially here in Belgium)

The official prices for the Vatican sets were also only 16EUR (maybe some more, I don't remember exactly).
These freaking high prices of over 300EUR, are just people who want to make big profit out of it! They bought there sets for the official price, and resell it for 20 times as much (or even more!)!

Because they are very very new :?: :?

And the €0,01 and €0,02 are useless in Finland, you can't pay with it, because they don't use the coins anymore,

You can pay with 1 & 2 cents if you want.. actually we haven't use those coins ever and I think that's was very clever decision..

Yes, tourists do pay with foreign 1 & 2 cent coins. A few weeks ago there was a big group of Portuguese visitors in town and I got Portuguese coins (also 1 & 2 cent coins) from a shopkeeper. :D
