2 EUROS COMMEMORATIVE COINS

Members of the Euro started to issue circulating 2 Euro commemorative coins in 2004.   The coins have the same specifications as the regular 2 Euro and use the standard 2 Euro design on one side and the commemorative design on the other.  They are the only commemorative coins allowed to circulate within all the Euro member nations. Each country may issue a maximum of one national commemorative 2 Euro per year.  Some years there is an additional issue when all the Euro members issue a commemorative on the same theme with similar designs, such as the 10th anniversary of the introduction of the Euro. Most countries do not issue coins every year.  These bi-metallic coins have become a popular collectible as they are an interesting and affordable series with a wide variety of designs.

Item VA-10E14 VATICAN GOLD 10 EURO 2014 BAPTISM, PROOF $395.00

Vatican 2014 Proof Set with 50 Euro Gold Coin commemorating canonization of Pope John Paul IIThe 2014 Vatican Proof set includes the copper-plated steel 1, 2 and 5 Eurocents, the brass 10, 20 and 50 Eurocent, the bi-metallic 1 and 2 Euro, plus a gold 50 Euro commemorating the canonization of Pope John Paul II. The 28mm gold coin weighs 15 grams and has a mintage of only 2000 pieces all of which went into the Proof sets. Pope Francis is on the obverse of each coin.  Only 2000 of the Proof sets were issued containing the gold 50 Euro.  
All the coins come in their original boxes with certificates of authenticity.  The coins are all quite scarce, and given the popularity of Pope Francis, I expect will be in great demand in the future.

Cyprus Treaty of Rome 1 Pound 2007CYPRUS AND THE EURO

In 2007 Cyprus was not yet a member of the Euro. However to show their support for the common currency they issued this commemorative 1 Pound coin commemorating 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome.  The Treaty helped established the European Union.  The coin utilized the same “open book” design as was used on the 2 Euro commemorative coins issued by Euro members.  The following year Cyprus became part of the Euro, however a recent banking crises almost forced them out of the Euro. The 38.6mm copper-nickel Proof-like 1 Pound coin features the Cypriot arms on the obverse.
