Great New Swap

Once again, 22 more coins for my collection. Who sent them? As you can see in the picture, it was Wendy from Netherlands.
Three magnificent commemorative coins - French and German TOR and also a German Schleswig-Holstein, two wonderful currency ones from Slovenia and the others seventeen are from Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, and obviously from Netherlands.
Thanks again.

In January 2008 the two newest Euro members, Cyprus and Malta, released their first official Euro coins into circulation. Cyprus chose to place the Mouflon, a native wild sheep, (the most characteristic specie of Cyprus), representing the island’s wild life on their 1, 2 and 5 eurocents, an ancient sailing ship, (the ship of Kyrenia - 4th century B.C.), on their 10, 20 and 50 eurocent and the ancient Idol of Pomos, a prehistoric fertility sculpture dating from about 3000 B.C. on their bimetallic 1 and 2 Euro coins. Once again, Rita (from Malta) sent me this splendid UNC set of Cyprus, in exchange of euro commemorative coins. Thanks a lot.
