500 000 pieces is quite low mintage so this coin can be expensive, I think.

it is the law in luxemburg to have someone of the rayal family on their coins..... so dont expect any different designs from them. If you remember both the TOR and EMU of Luxemburg have the picture in picture effect (image of the duke) to keep with their laws.

That's a very nice design.

I've never seen the personal Coat-of-Arms of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg on a coin before.

This Coat-of-Arms is the Luxembourgish equivilant of Queen Elizabeth II's own personal Coat-of-Arms.

Yes true but perhaps better stupid designs than nothing
after all these coins are not expensive

Another standard looking coin from Luxembourg that really commemorates nothing. I'd rather they waited for a noticeable event or date to mark, rather than producing very similarly designed coins year after year after year.
