Belgium - 2008 New Series

Another month, another swap with Wendy from The Netherlands. Among others she sent me 2 (2 € and 50 cent) shining 2008 Belgian coins (in 2008, Belgium slightly modified the design, although all the coins still depicts King Albert II).

Crosses, Castles and Mountains

The 8 (x3) slovakian beauties, depicted in the image are the result of my last exchange, this time from a Slovakian collector, Michal. Thanks.
On January 1, 2009, The Slovak Republic, also known as Slovakia, became the newest nation to join the Euro. The 1 and 2 € coins depict a double cross on three hills, as featured in the national emblem of Slovakia. The 10, 20 and 50 centimes coins show Bratislava castle and the national emblem of Slovakia. The 1, 2 and 5 cent coins feature the Tatra Mountains’ peak, Kriváň, a symbol of the sovereignty of the Slovak nation, and the national emblem of Slovakia.
