Also, it does not take that long to produce them.Dakkus wrote:According to a news article just published, they have not been minting the Estonian coins yet.
The article mentions that minting the coins will begin on Tuesday next week (that is: 2010-07-20) and will indeed take place in Vantaa, Finland.
Yep, they did and do. The mint in Vantaa has produced euro coins for Cyprus, Finland (surprise), Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, and Slovenia. And I am pretty sure they get orders from outside the euro area as well. If we look at it the other way round, the Irish euro coins have been made in Austria, Croatia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, and the UK.I also didn't know that they have minted coins for Ireland in Vantaa, as well.
Interesting news, thanks for sharing. Ok, so it is somehow expectable that they would start minting coins now. But this let us know that the coins may have the mint mark of Suommi. Am I right?
Yet another issue: for those people interested, here is an article recently published on a Spanish newspaper: http://www.elpais.com/articulo/economia ... ieco_4/Tes" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
