Some local guy at the international airport in Sri Lanka asked to change some Euro coins into notes. One of the coins was a 50c from Estonia :) .

I found a 1€ coin, during my service behind the counter of the summer concert of my school. The second Estonian coin I received :D .

I spent a day in Estonia recently and came back with a few Estonian coins and a some Finnish ones. One Estonian of each denomination went into my collection(I still don't have 1 or 20 cent).The ferries do have an impact on the distribution. I took half of the "surplus" Estonian coins to Berlin this weekend. None came back with me. Some will have been spent at Kadewe and some of it at S-Bahn Zoologischer Garten.

Now let see how long it will take the Estonians to find some Latvian euro coins :D

Which other countries' euro coins are you noticing in circulation?

Today got 10 c :flag-ee: at Rimi supermarket Riga city,
also this year in Latvia personally already observed 5c :flag-fi: , 10c :flag-ie: and 2eur :flag-nl:

Probably Latvian coins will be quite common in Estonia, like a Estonian in Latvia

I'd say already around 20% of change I get is in foreign coins, they are from all over EU - I've certainly seen Estonia, Germany, Spain, Austria, Italy, Belgium, Finland.

But that's only logical - also I spent the spare euro coins I had left with from different trips.

And here we are - have a full set of Estonian coins. :D Still, can't say that I see them that often - German, Spanish, Italian coins are way more common.
