I gave you 2002 :flag-fi: 2€ in Nürnberg. I hope you haven't lost it because it is quite rare.

Hi aplfi, nice to see you in this topic, I waited for you :D Of course I still have it, I thought of listing this coin, then I remembered I have it from you, and so it wasn't me who found it in circulation, so I waited for you to post this coin :lol:

You can note all the 2002 Spanish ones. You can still find them among us in circulation... except the 2 cents and 5 cents which are impossible. (However, I got them in my gollection :D )

Better put: in some countries the year on the coin is the year of minting, in some it's the year they're put (or perhaps should be put) in circulation. For a euro changeover, of course, lots of coins are needed, and since coins last longer than banknotes, most coins in circulation might well be from the first euro years (=2002).

and what is with
:flag-it: 10 cent, 50 cent, 2 euro, 1 euro
:flag-at: 5 cent, 2 cent, 1 cent, 2 euro, 1 euro
and the other :flag-gr: coins from 2002 are also findable, I can't imagine that you have never had any of them :)
and remember that the :flag-gr: coins from 2002 have 2 different versions, with or without the EFS letters
