Lowest mintage coins found in change/circulation

Post by goldeneye »

About a week ago in Riga, :flag-lv: , got a :flag-fi: 20c 2005 in change - mintage: 718,000

Anyone else found coins in circulation/change with a mintage of lower than 1 million?

What a collection the pooh tripper 8O Have you actually found them all in circulation?

Here are mine :

1 :flag-lu: 2008 480000
2 :flag-gr: 2003 550000 (gifted, but I think it was first found in circulation)
2 :flag-mt: 2012 CCC 670000
2 :flag-mc: 2016 864645
0,5 :flag-ad: 2018 890000
0,05 :flag-fi: 2007 917000
0,1 :flag-fi: 2007 917000
0,2 :flag-fi: 2007 917000
0,5 :flag-fi: 2007 917000
1 :flag-fi: 2007 917000 (the whole :flag-fi: 2007 series was a gift, so it was not found in circulation)
0,2 :flag-gr: 2011 965000
2 :flag-si: 2016 CC 984500
1 :flag-mc: 2001 994634 (gifted, and this one is dubious. I'll open a thread about that one)

I also have 198 coins under 10,000,000 minted, including : :flag-ad: 3 coins, :flag-at: 9, :flag-be: 6, :flag-fi: 11, :flag-fr: 11, :flag-de: 31, :flag-gr: 3, :flag-ie: 10, :flag-it: 8, :flag-lu: 68, :flag-mt: 1, :flag-mc: 4, :flag-nl: 6, :flag-pt: 3, :flag-sm: 4, :flag-sk: 1, :flag-si: 1, :flag-es: 16 and :flag-va: 2

Among these, 6 of them have been officially minted at 1,000,000 coins:
2 :flag-fr: 2012 CC 1000000
0,5 :flag-gr: 2005 1000000
1 :flag-lu: 2010 1000000
1 :flag-lu: 2016 1000000
2 :flag-lu: 2007 CC 1000000
1 :flag-mc: 2016 1000000
