Such things can occur because of large differences in the number of unused coins in the vaults of National Banks. If country X has almost no spare coins left but needs them, and country Y still has loads of surplusses, then can agree to ship the coins from Y to X.
The letters on the notes are just neutral codes, not national symbols just like heads sides of the euro coins.

If those pooling coins are more widely used the original idea of the different coins of EMU countries is lost somehow.

Exactly my point.
I'd understand this better if the coins were minted with Italian national side.
But in the other hand, if the coins are already minted, it's a bit hard reminting them with a different national side and doing what has now been done may very well be the only reasonable option.
I'd just hope the NCBs knew better how much they need each coin type, so that they could order coins from other mints in advance with their own national side, if their own capasity isn't enough.

Yes, and it will be easier to collect foreign Euro coins... Which I just dislike. The coins really should travel between different countries by natural circulation, not onboard a truck.

If anyone want to swap Finnish euro coins, Netherlands 2004, German 2004... i think we can find an agreement.

So, thank you to send your eurolist at Bencodron@aol.com
