2-euro commemorative coins are popular collector’s items because one can find them in their own wallets. However, an increasing amount of these coins are only issued in the form of high-quality versions. Numiscontrol explains what collectors need to know about this.
There are probably no other 19th-century coins that have shaped our modern coinage as significantly as these: King Ludwig I of Bavaria created the first ever series of commemorative coins in the modern sense of the term. In 1902, Philipp von Ferrary commissioned the Bavarian State Mint to produce gold off-metal strikes of these coins. Numismatica Genevensis will be offering seven of these unique pieces at its auction this autumn.
In its upcoming auction, Numismatica Genevensis will be presenting two specimens of the most beautiful coins of Greek numismatics – or even of all time, actually. These coins are two Syracusan decadrachms by Kimon, featuring an almost portrait-like image of Arethusa on the reverse.
The popular 0-euro souvenir notes have been around since 2015. Our expert numiscontrol takes stock and examines which issues are mass-produced and which banknotes are true rarities.
