Nice Pair

Issued year - 2008, February
Unbelievable. These two missing german coins ("D" - Munich and "J" - Hamburg mintmarks), came from the small change found everyday. They became my 2nd and 3th 2008 german Bunsdesland series coins (3th of 16) and they feature St. Michael's Church, in Hamburg. Now, only the "A" - Berlin and "G" - Karslruhe mintmark coins are missing.

Issuing volume of this 2008 Hamburg bundesland series: 30.000.000

Uau, another Finish commemorative coin

Issued year, 2007, December
This fabulous, weird and wonderful coin, shows nine people rowing a boat with long oars, symbolising collaboration and it features the 90th anniversary of Finland's independence. The year of issue, 2007, and the year of independence, 1917, appear above and below the image, respectively. This one (my second commemorative Finish coin) and all the others depicted in the image were also sent by Jouni Saarni (see the last post). Thanks again, Jouni.

First Finish commemorative coin

Issued year, 2006, October
All these fabulous coins depicted in the image - 2 commemorative and 7 currency finish coins, result of a recent exchange with Jouni Saarni from Finland. The front coin shows male and female faces separated by a line and it features the 100th anniversary of the Universal and equal suffrage.
