Re: 2€ 2019 Netherlands Rembrandt

I see them allready on websites for 20 euro. The 20 euro is not very strange. In the Netherlands for some reason I don't understand there is a group of collectors that will buy anything as long as it is in a coincard. Even old coins from the "gulden" period which are not rare at all ar pu...

Re: 2€ 2019 Netherlands Rembrandt

I understand your confusion.
This is just a way of the commercial company KNM to make more money.
It is very disappointing that Netherlands do not issue a real 2 euro Rembrandt coin as commemorative.

Re: Collecting PP Proof 2 euro commemorative

Btw i forgot to mention the feeling of doing swaps. It’s nice to hear the swappartner is happy. That certainly is true, it is also a good feeling to have friends all over Europe. Because of this I decided to keep the forum up and running during past years. It needs limited time to maintain and my s...

Re: Collecting PP Proof 2 euro commemorative

I was a long time not interested because we bought a property, build a house and did a lot by ourselves so collecting was not something i did in the past years. Happy now i found my way back to the forum. I was a little bit shocked when i saw how far behind i was. :-) I know the feeling, for severa...

Re: Collecting PP Proof 2 euro commemorative

Also i am hesitating what to do with the different mintmarks You might consider to collect only different mintmarks when there is a really good reason for the difference, other than just try to get collectors money. Of course this is very difficult to decide. I think the ADFGJ are not made up for c...

Re: Collecting PP Proof 2 euro commemorative

But i am dissapointed because Monaco has now only pp coins. Would like to had them fdc aswell. They make it harder to collect than before. I don't see why it makes it harder to collect since you already have a lot of proof coins. In an ideal world all coins would be available in FDC/BU or all all c...

Re: Collecting PP Proof 2 euro commemorative

What do you guys do? You leave them in the blisters? You store them next to your UNC or FDC coins, or do you collect and store them separately? There is a third option: don't collect coins only in proof..... It is difficult to decide, when left in their original package you get the feeling they are...

Re: Usage of 1 & 2 Cent coins in your country

In Netherlands they are not used, prices are still in cents, only the final amount is rounded when you pay. So on average it will not cost you anything extra, as long as we still have 5 cent coins. In fact you can have some profit, when you see the final amount should be rounded upwards you can pay ...
