From a café at Cais do Sodré transit hub. A group of German-speakers was monopolizing the counter enjoying what they undoubtedly regarded as good cheap beer, I bet it came from one of them. :P

I found a 2007 Treaty of Rome coin from Luxembourg today. A very unexpected find in Ireland. I've got very very few coins from Luxembourg in change over the years...even when I was in Luxembourg. There were only about 2 million of the Luxembourg Treaty of Rome coins minted. It has a strange circular plate thing in it that the other Treaty of Rome coins don't have.

From Wikipedia:
Wikipedia wrote:Due to special laws requiring that every coin bear the incumbent Grand Duke's portrait, the Luxembourgish edition of the common €2 commemorative coin differs slightly from the others in addition to the translated inscriptions, since a latent image of the Grand Duke's portrait was added (as required by national law) using a technique called multi-view minting.

Interesting! Although it's clear it's not a very long lasting solution, he has faded away. :lol:

Yes, all the coins I've seen in circulation are faded like that :?
Here's what it's supposed to look like, using the 2012 commemorative coin.
