Euro coins collection

I started collecting Euro coins from all Euroland countries at the very beginning of 2002; I completed my collection at the end of May 2003.

My collection would have never been completed without the help of some people: I would like to thank my Internet friends Adriaan de Groot, Danny Cramer and Philippe Ozga.

 

What is this Euro thing?

Twelve countries of the European Union share the same currency: the Euro. The Euro was born on 1 Jan 1999, but it started to circulate only on 1 Jan 2002. Euro comes in two forms, banknotes and coins; while banknotes are the same in all Eurozone countries, the reverse side of euro coins varies from country to country. This is why I am collecting them!

If you want to learn more about the Euro and have a look at the different coins you should visit its official site.
