Quote: "HerveMonaco"​Hello • ​There is one thing I dont understand ... sorry • ​When I buy at the bank a roll of 2 euros Monaco 2019 it sells me 50 euros ... when you buy a roll of 2 euros "rising sun" at the bank of Latvia you sell it at what price ? • ​ • ​Best regards from Monaco • ​Hervé​Herve, • These guys are not interested in collection. Only MONEY drives them. Of course, in the Bank of Latvia You can buy roll for 50 euros. In this case, ALL coins were bought untill 12:00 (during 4 hours all coins were sold). Huge amounts were bought by reselling speculants and this is the result. 2 eur commemorative You will never get for nominal price, now it will be at least two times higher. Same story with Monaco, San Marino, Andorra and Vatican commemorative coins. Nothing personal, just their business...

Irish 2 euro cc 2016 will be issued in 4.500.000 ex. • Normal price for coins issued 1.000.000 ex is 3,50 eur not more. • So, dear collegue, price 6 eur is 2 times to high, in case Your coin is not in card or blister. • So UNC coin from roll, issued in 4.500.000 ex, just simple can not cost 6 euros.

Hello, Lords of Numismatic! • I am also trying to reach this peak! So some ideas as questions about new country positions: • - EU (Europe Union) as itself; I got the form for 1 euro coin, just form. So, practically- token from EU. • - Virtual Currency; bought in e-bay physical Bitcoin. Not a state itself, but as separate position probably fits. Let's be up-to-day, guys! ;) • - Bouvet Island (part of Norway). I have a probe coin mentioned as from Bouvet Island- no name about Norway. • - Micronesia (Federated states of Micronesia); possible to buy coins-tokens with fishes and animals mentioned as from Micronesia. • Just an offer to help to somebody reach 300 sooner... • Decision up to You- to count it or not. • Happy New Year, anyway!
