Europe’s decision to switch from a diverse collection of currencies to the Euro was one the biggest monetary policy decisions of the decade. It marked a massive transition toward unity in Europe and the culmination of over 100 years of work. Unfortunately the Euro of today is suffering from some problems, but with any luck it will recover soon.
You can celebrate not only the Euro but the diverse collection of coinage that preceded it with the Complete Euro Coin Collection coin set. The set features 12 Euro coins and 12 coins of original European currency from nations like Italy, Greece, Finland and Spain. No coin set better encompasses Europe; it has one foot in the old world and one in the new. It is very much a product of the world we live in today. You should act now because original European currency is quickly being removed from circulation.
This set makes a great gift to coin collectors or kids who are studying European history. The set comes in a case that includes a colorized European money map and a pamphlet about the different currencies in use prior to the Euro. It’s a great reference to have on hand and is great fun to display.
