Austrians speak German

Do you have a Euro cent 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.

Not to be outdone by fellows collectors kestrelia and James UK who seem to find Euro coins on a regular basis, no jealousy...seriously, I just found this nice Austrian coin in my change.

It is my first non-U.S. change find in three weeks. This leads to a beginning of more coin finds but less time to blog about it. The new semester just started meaning I'll spend more and get more change. The bad part is it will be small change.

For those who never took engineering here are this semester book prices $121.75, $157.50, $145.00, and $47.75 and that's used.

If I find a rare coin I will sell it so fast it would break v = 331 m/s + (0.6 m/s/C)•T .

Back to my little Euro from Austria only the third Austrian Euro I ever found. I like the EIN, very unique among Euros.

Joining the Euro currency trend in 2002 most of those coins were actually minted in 1999 but there is no way to tell the difference.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Euro Cent / Austria
Year: 2007
Mintage: 111,900,000
Metal: Copper Plated Steel: 94.35% Steel 5.65% Copper
Value: $0.10 in XF

Now, that is a nice one!

I've not seen an Austrian one myself. A quick look over at Euroswapper says that the flower is a "gentian", and

/quote:

"...as the last part of the floral series, symbolising a duty to the environment and the part Austria is playing in the development of a Community environmental policy."

We must work out a way we can send all these coins around to each other. I'd be glad to get rid of the Euros! ;-)

I'm very much of a keep-them-all coin collector. One day I have to go through them and really start thinning out my coins but that won't be for a long time.

I hear rumors England will be going all Euro in 2010. Just wait and spend them at home.

I forgot to add I'm going to use your "I will sell so fast it would break v = 331 m/s + (0.6 m/s/C)•T" quote myself!

Yeah, the Euro must be coming here, even though we all want to stick to our pounds and pence...
