Quick Find

Do you have a Euro coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I'm trying to post the coins I find or buy faster so with that in mind I found this Irish Euro coin in my change two days ago and don't want to leave it wandering on my desk for months.

Ireland (Eire) has been using Euros since 2002 and each year they mint less and less. Take the 2 Euro cent in 2002 the made 354,643,386 by 2006 they only made 26,628,597 which is a big drop.
Note the 2009 Standard Catalog of World Coins 2001-Date has a 2005 mintage of 72,600. This is completely wrong someone left out the extra numbers.

The coins edge has a smooth edge with a groove, I couldn't get a good picture so here is an image from the great and awful Wikipedia.


Here's the stats from top left...
Type/Country: 2 Euro Cent / Ireland
Year: 2007
Mintage: 84,291,248(Estimated the true number may not be known for years)
Metal: Copper Plated Steel
Value: $0.10 in VF

i have a 1 euro cent with a harp on the back, is this a error, cuz I looked at the pictures and it shows it with a flower on the back, how much could it be worth?

Not an error.
Each country has it's own design of the euro so a harp on the back is a euro from Ireland while a flower on the back is a euro from Austria or something the designs are always changing.

yes i have a euro I tried to take a picture of it for you but it wouldnt come out clear so Im going to explain the best I can. On the back its got a type of cross with the letters (por) on the left top side of the cross and the letters (tv) on the right top side and the letters (Ga) on the bottom left and a (L) on the bottom right side of the cross. Im pretty sure those are the letters not sure its in weird font. also around all that there is these symbols like square and rounded with lines on top of them its hard to explain nothing ive ever seen before. and ofcourse on the outer edges is the stars like the other euros. I was just extremely courious because it has no date, not that i can read anyways, please help me on this one thank you, Amanda get back to me if you have any questions aharrell881@gmail.com
