Re: Lithuanian coins found in circulation OUTSIDE Lithuania

I was lucky to get my my first Lithuanian coin, a shiny 2 € coin. :D I got it as a change from a local S-market in Revontuli shopping center in center of Rovaniemi.

There are a lot of tourists visiting Lapland this time of year and I have also seen some Lithuanian busses lately. Still it was a nice surprise as it took much longer time to get my first Estonian coin.

(Today, I have done the "return" trip to :flag-be: :P )

And, in the same :flag-fr: rest area, during the discussion with a female worker (in fact : in the cafeteria of the rest area), I have also had - only by exchanging - coins from Luxembourg - Monaco - Vatican City 8O

AND ! "The best of the best" : She said to me (in :flag-fr: language, but I translate here ;) ) : "I have also a 2015-coin". I answered "What ? Are you sure ?". She replied "Yes, here it is". Oh my God : it's...a €2 Lithuanian coin I have seen ! 8O

But every good news have also bad news : my SmartPhone was down, so I wasn't able to take a picture of "the beast"... Sorry.

PS : the exact date = last Monday, December 29th, 2014, round 10am.

i am sure that Lithuania euro coins will be very common in Latvia and probably even in Estonia :D
i hope we start to get some "baltic euro coins" here in the south - almost non existing :S

four :flag-lt: got so far: 1x1Eur 2x20c and 1x1c. currently most common in :flag-lv: are :flag-de: coins but future :flag-lt: are expected same level of abundance. so in :flag-lv: both :flag-mt: and :flag-si: are rarest circulation coins and do not expect much of baltic ones in your country.
