Euro Coin  Issues/News in 2017


2017 yielded the same number of Commemorative coins as 2016 - 32. As 23 countries issue coins this means we had an average issue of 1.4 coins per country.

Cyprus issued its first Commemorative Coin - the Odeon built by the Romans in Pathos.

Andorra continued to issue behind time - its 2016 coins appeared in 2017 and I'm afraid the 2017 Commemorative Coins only appeared in 2018. If it issues any 2018 Commemorative Coins it will be interesting to see when they appear!

Another interesting feature is the French Commemorative Coin that appeared in September commemorating 25 years of breast cancer awareness. 10,000 of these were minted with the ribbon coloured red. While they are theoretically legal tender they will almost certainly all be snapped up collectors and never appear in circulation.


Hereunder are the commemoratives of 2017, arranged alphabetically by country rather than chronologically.
