50th anniversary of Élysée Treaty
After many centuries of rivalry between France and Germany, which shook Europe and the world, on 22th January 1963, the Élysée Treaty, a treaty of friendship between the two nations, was signed by Charles de Gaulle on behalf of France and Konrad Adenauer for Germany.
The Treaty led to the reconciliation of two populations, with city twinning and exchanges in culture, language, buisness and many other fields!
To mark the 50th anniversary France and Germany are releasing a common 2 Euros coin.
On the coin are the faces of Charles de Gaulle (left) and Konrad Adenauer (right), turned towards the inscription "50 ANS JAHRE 2013" (50 years 2013, in French and German). The signature of each man is below their head. The inscription Élysée Treaty is mentioned in French "TRAITÉ DE L'ÉLYSÉE" and in German "ÉLYSÉE-VERTRAG". Beside this are the letters "RF" on French coins or the letter "D" for German coins. German mint letters (A, D, F, G or J) are positioned under Konrad Adenauer's head; French mintmarks are under both heads. The stars of Europe are in circle around the design.
Philatelists friends, a Franco-German stamp is already available!
As some of you noticed, the site was down yesterday night from 9:16 pm to 4:15 am (Paris night). The problem has been fixed although I still don't know its origin, and it seems that no data has been lost.
The error message might still appear for some page if you loaded them when the site was down and they were saved in your computer memory. In this case, refresh the page and the error message should disappear.
I'm sorry for this incident which made Numista unavailable.
History will remember...
On the June 3rd, 2012 tickermark,
the big history will remember that an Atlantic island celebrated its Queen's jubilee,
the small history will notice that roberchan created the Numista's 30,000th coin, the Suid Afrika - uMzantsI Afrika 5 rand
Will History tell this way or the other way around ?
Congratulations to all Numista members! ...and congratulations to our UK and Commonwealth friends.
I had been monitoring the coin counter for a few days. Today morning at 11:00, the counter showed 29,993. "OK, I have time to run my errands". I created the coin at 12:20 French time, after preparing the appetizer and
before serving it. Well, there was no need to rush. Counter still showed 30,000 two hours later. True enough, most of you preferred calling mum (today is mother day in France. And yes, I called my mum) or enjoy the jubilee parade or just a quiet sunday.
Swap and get what you want!
A new feature was just published on Numista. It should meet the expectations that many of you told me about recently.
You can now specify which coin you wish to get and which coins you don't want to get. This way, you will be able to find which members really offer what you are interested in.
To avoid having to individually select each coin you are interested in or refuse to collect, you can specify your wishes by criteria. For example you can specify that you want only US coins, excluding gold coins. Of course, it is also possible to add a coin individually to your list of wanted or unwanted coins.
Set the new page "Your wishes" and enjoy the results on the "Start a swap", which will give you more personalized figures, and on the swap pages of the members.
