I had lost my 1c and 2c Finland 2005 Osku^ bought for me but finnaly, I've found them back -- pheehww -- :) .

Strange fact: a few days after EBTM05, I went to the Finnish National bank myself to get some extra 1c-2c rolls. When I was home, I realized the have given me 1c-2c 2004 rolls 8O :? ... Did they made a mistake or did they ran out of 2005 coins?

The 5 rolls of both coins I got from Osku were ALL 2004-dated (but no problem - thanks again! :D), so maybe the nationalbank does not really care about the dates? Have you explicit asked for 2005-coins :?:
If they were out, they'd probably mentioned that and offered you the 2004s instead...

BTW - Update 2005-coins:
:flag-de: (A) 2c, 5c
:flag-de: (G) 5c
:flag-de: (J) 2c

Why would they not have given you a 2004 roll if they still had them left?
You can't suppose they should have just thrown away all of those coins only because they were from "wrong" year.

If the nationalbank handle this like any other way of changing money, you're right but if they should sell them for higher prices than the nominal value and for special numismatic demand they should care about what the buyer wants.

I don't know how it is in Finland (I guess the 1&2c are probably only requested by numismatics cause they're not used in circulation) but if I ask in a german Bundesbank-branch for mintrolls, I can call myself lucky if they have unc rolls at all - special years or even mintmarks? Forget it!
But for them it is nothing but changing money while Luxemburg for example gives unc rolls only for higher prices but you get exactly what you want.

BTW, in a town nearby, a bank has installed a 24h ATM for mintrolls where every roll costs +40c if you're no client of the bank.
I've not checked it yet but I'm very curious about :)

The Fi-NCB sells the 1c and 2c coins for their nominal value. They sell them because of the collectors, but because they're a national bank, it's apparently about their pride: They are there to issue money, not to play games with the collectors. At least that's what I guess is what they think.
And I think that's pretty logical.

Come on Portugal! You're the only country missing now!
If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.
