And actually nothing changed since the first days of euro in Lithuania. More than half of all foreign eurocoins in my town are still from neighbour Latvia 8)

I found my first :flag-lv: coin (a 20c) in Gibraltar a couple of weeks ago. Actually I was looking for some new Gibraltar coins, and when a shop assistant looked for me in her tip box I was astonished to see it there, among other euro, GIP and GBP coins. It's funny that I found my first Latvian euro coin outside the Eurozone!

I got a Latvian 1 cent coin and two Latvian 2 cents coins from the post office of arctic circle village. :D

In Finland we don´t use 1 and 2 cents coins so they had saved those they have got from foreign visitors. And they kindly swapped them with me.

Well mistakenly they had confused US 1 cent coin with Euro 2 cents coins. So at home I noticed I have got a US 1 cent coin too. :lol:
