Is it just me, or is everyone else finding it hard to get Italian coins?
In the last few years it has be hard to find full sets other than dealers :?:

I haven't manage to get Italian UNC set from a swap many years now...
Every year I have to buy a few sets for me and some friends. Most of the times from German ebay.
It's strange indeed.
I think the distribution system of the coins in Italy makes it almost impossible for single persons to get some rolls.
Maybe some of our Italian friends could help us in this topic.

Hello, I'm an Italian collector of UNC coins and I confirm that also for italian people is impossibile find complete set each year.
The motivation is that, unlike all other euro countries, each year is impossibile to find at the Bank of Italy each coin of each value, in rolls or loose coins, and we don't know when the coin that we need is available in a Bank and we don't know in which bank (Italy is big and the Bank of Italy has many locations).
In add, if you go in one location of Bank of Italy, the employee isn't available to see that in the roll that he have there is the year that you need. And if you ask sometimes rather rude.
It is a very hard and difficult thing have an Italy Set UNC, may impossibile unfortunately!
