Found in my change at a gas station on the A10 stretch of the E40 motorway near :flag-be: Brussels: :flag-lt: 2€. It seems a Lithuanian truck driver made a stop.

And guess what? Today, when I paid with that coin in kiosk, the cashier looked at the coin and was saying that it's not a euro coin. Then she turned the coin and noticed that oh, it seems to be a euro coin while it's looking like strannge :mrgreen: And I have to say that it differs from other euro coins, you immediately notice it when you look it with other coins.

As far as I can see, the Lithuanian 10ct coin I have, has the exact same shape as the other 26 I have.

I just mean that it looks like totally different from the National side than other 10 cent coins.

My guess - lithuanian coins have the little stripes between stars, what was needed for us to fast recognize eurocoins from litas coins and cents. Actually these stripes are only on lithuanian and maltese cent (10-50 ct) coins. Lower values are no problem - national cents were aluminium ones.

Of course they do. Each country has a unique national side. That's why they are national sides in the first place.

Anyway, I was surprised to find a :flag-lt: €1 here in :flag-be: today.
