Some major changes that spring to mind:


  • The issue of Euro coins for Latvia which joined the Euro zone on 1st January 2014 - view Latvian Euro Coins.          
  • The issue of Euro coins for Andorra which joined the Euro zone on 1st January 2014 -view Andorran Euro Coins.

  • Also of interest are two royal double portraits - change of monarchy in Spain and a 50th anniversary in Luxembourg.

Regarding Commemoratives, 2014 promises to be a great year, even surpassing 2013 which gave us 23 new Commemoratives. Some have already been issued and planned in total by the end of the year are 23.
