LITHUANIA Error on printing2€ CC

Postby jore » Thu 27 May 2021, 09:18

The Bank of Lithuania informs that part of the 2 euro commemorative coins dedicated to the Žuvintas Biosphere Reserve were minted with an error in the edge lettering. Instead of the Lithuanian inscription LAISVĖ * VIENYBĖ * GEROVĖ *, the Latvian inscription DIEVS * SVĒTĪ * LATVIJU is used on the edge. The error only occurs on coins that are in the BU coincard. It is estimated that up to 10 percent of the BU coins got the Latvian edge lettering.
"The Bank of Lithuania asked the Lithuanian Mint to clarify the circumstances of the events and to ensure the prevention of errors in the future. An internal investigation is being carried out at the Lithuanian Mint, and additional process control and prevention actions have been taken. The Lithuanian Mint regrets the situation."

Not 10% even less i think as bank after mistake has rechecked all the coincards which were still not shipped and has shipped only without mistake.

I have this coincard, now I'm looking for the coincard with the correct coin in it.
Can anyone offer this to me? It is sold out at Lithuanian bank and even when it was not sold out shipping cost to rest of Europe of the Lithuanian bank are very high...
