Don't know if it has been already mentioned... the Stuttgart-mint (F) strucked by mistake an unknown quantity of the :flag-de: 2 € CC "Hamburg" with the old map of europe (though germany uses the new map since 2007 anyway) and put them into circulation. 8O
I was quiet sceptic when hearing this but now I got such a strange piece myself... :lol:

Also I found the following 2008-dated coins in circulation that are not in the list yet:
:flag-de: (A) 5c
:flag-de: (D) 2c
:flag-de: (F) 20c

Yes Jes! :mrgreen: And my face was quite the same as yours here above when I gave my first glance at them! :lol:
There should be something like 1.200.000 20 cent coins and 1.400.000 50 cent coins 2008 from San Marino in circulation, and even some 2009 1€ coins. :D
I found both of them near Bologna, so not so far from San Marino... But I hope some of them will reach you even further than here, all around Europe! :wink:

Today I received a :flag-de: STANDART-2 € (eagle and new front) with 2008-J together with another :flag-de: STANDART-2 € 2006-D 8O
Both are nearly uncirculated and this is the very first time, I find 2€-eagles with a later date than 2004. So far I thought they were produced for the official sets only.

According to http://www.euro-auflagen.de the normal 2€ has been minted for circulation (11.970.000 of such coins have been minted by J), but the 2006 coin hasn't. However, it wouldn't be the first time that Germany still minted a certain coin for circulation that wasn't initially minted for circulation, examples are the 20ct 2003 F and the 50ct 2003 D. So it could be the same with the 2€ 2006 D.

I have never found any 2006 eagle coin, but now there are also 2010 eagle coins. I think in 2007 and 2009 they did not mint eagles because of the TOR and EMU coins, so it was clear that there will be 2010 eagles!

Now I found another officially nonexistant coin 8O 8O
together with a 10c de 2003 F, which is only the second one of this coin that I found
