Cool find indeed! :) I suppose that family member has put them aside for you, and not come across them within a day - but still great. Especially the San Marino piece; but coins from Cyprus, for example, are not exactly common around here either ...

I think all these coins are very hard to find in circulation, especially the one from San Marino!
WoW 8O 20ct San Marino 02 ... a very nice found ^^

Near Frankfurt/Main :flag-de: , 1 cent coins of the following countries are extremely rare, so rare that I didn`t see any, or just one shortly after the Euro was introduced. These coins are:
:flag-be: , :flag-cy: , :flag-ee: (hadn`t one yet :( ), :flag-fi: (won`t get one any more :cry: ), :flag-gr: , :flag-ie: , :flag-lu: , :flag-mt: , :flag-pt: , :flag-sk:(hadn`t one yet :( ), :flag-si:

In general, Estonian, Finnish, Slovakian, Slovenian, Cypriot and Maltese coins are hard to find. And of course Vatican, San Marino and Monaco coins, although I have Vatican 50 cent, Sn Marino 2, 5 cent and Monaco 1€, all out of circulation :D :D .

Last Thursday, I received the Finnish 2009 CC coin in :flag-mt: Gzira, Malta :D 8O :D . For me, a very, very rare coin (as Finnish CC coins are generally rare).
