Coin Migration Monitor: Commemorative coins found in circulation.

2 euro commemorative coins are nowadays more often found in coin collections than circulating as normal cash... Once a while though, a used circulated commemorative pops up in our supermarket small change...

This discussion is a proposal to try to monitor the migration of these coins all across the eurozone.

yes that is true - it is nice that 2 euro commemorative coins come in limited volumes, however, when issued they should be relatively common in circulation otherwise they lose the scope - then their volume over time will start to decrease naturally by the wear and tear.

Germany 2012 ''Ten years of euro cash''

F mint (Stuttgart)

Found in Cyprus (Pafos) in July 2013

Imagine that Greece 2004 discovole with montage of more than 20 million coins was send to circulation

Nowadays one roll of this coin costs more than 70€

So montage is good when coins are shown in circulation

The 2004GRE Discovolus is, 9 years after circulation, still the most frequent find in small-change as far as cc coins are concerned...
