Couple of weeks ago I found 50c 2008 San Marino coin. And today 50c 2011 from Vatican - first Vatican coin from circulation for me! :-) Both found in Kranj :flag-si: .

I've found :flag-fi: Finnish 1 cent coin (2005) some time ago from parking lot of a gas station. It's quite rare, at least because we don't use 1 and 2 cent coins in Finland. I have also :flag-ie: Irish 1 cent coin from the year 2007, and it's maybe quite rare too :D

(I guess this goes here.)

Recently I found a €2 San Marino coin. And to think I almost spent it without looking at it.
My NIG stats have finally disappeared. My EBTST stats are still available.

Of course these coins are real!
But the set isn't an official BU-set issued by the AASFN (Mint of San Marino). It's a self-made set consisting of (less rare) Sammarinese coins from different years.
However it's a very nice souvenir, Philgelico! :D

yes, MaxVR, and a souvenir of a wonderful "mini-meeting" day with a very nice friend "mico" , from Pesaro ! :)
And, well, San Marino could be a wonderful place for a EBT International Meeting in the future !!! Why not ??

I live in Ireland, and from what I've been told, Irish coins are quite rare outside of Ireland. We're always asked for a set when we visit relatives on the continent.

I have the complete sets of the 12 original countries, though I had to buy the Finnish 1c and 2c coins. I have never seen any Estonian or Latvian coins in circulation over here so far.

That's interesting. I thought there were quite a lot of Latvians and Estonians living in Ireland?

I have a few coins that I will bring to Ireland on my visit in early October. Who knows, they may end up in your wallet after a while.

Took 3 years for first :flag-ee: coin to reach my pocket, so I guess it will be same with :flag-lv: , or hopefully a bit less, as there are direct flights to Riga and a lot of Latvians in Ireland
