Coin-related knowledge

What do the two “L”s on the value side of the euro coins mean?

These are the designer’s initials, Luc Luyxc (Belgium).

The 1 and 2 euro coins sometimes have different colors. Does this mean that different metals have been used?

Like all materials, the metals used in coins are also subject to environmental influences. Therefore, color fluctuations can occur depending on the time of manufacture, the storage location, temperature, humidity, etc. In addition, the center part of the 2 euro coin and the ring around the 1 euro coin are made from a copper alloy with zinc and nickel additives. Even a minor change in the composition can cause slight color fluctuations and a reddish coloring. This is tolerated and does not represent a defect.

What does the alloy "Sterling silver” consist of?

Up until 2010, the silver commemorative coins of the Federal Republic of Germany consisted of the alloy Sterling silver. They consist of 92.5% silver. The rest is copper, which makes the coin metal harder and thus less sensitive. Since 2011, the alloy consists of 62.5% silver (625 Ag) and the rest of copper.

What is meant by "Nordic gold"?

The alloy from which the 10, 20 and 50 cent coins are produced is called “Nordic gold”. The metal mixture consists of copper (89 percent), aluminum (5 percent), zinc (5 percent) and tin (1 percent). Not to be confused with the term “Gold of the North” which is the name given to amber.

Are the new euro coins different thicknesses? The 50 euro cent coins in particular don’t seem to be uniform!

The 10 to 50 cent coins, and also the 1 and 2 euro coins, can sometimes appear to be different thicknesses. This is an optical illusion caused by the ribbed edge of the coin. Ribbing that has become very rounded makes the coins look thinner than standard coinage. Minting of the ribbed edge is technically very difficult. During minting, the coin blank must be pressed into the indentations in the minting ring. At the elevations of the minting ring, with which the material comes into contact first, burrs can form prematurely on the flat bar. It is down to the extreme skill of the master minter that the optimal specification of the value and image side as well as the coin edge are achieved. Minor differences are, however, inevitable.

The edge lettering on a euro doesn’t always begin at the same place on the coins. Why is that?

The edge lettering is minted into the coin blank in a separate work step. Only after this is done are the unsorted blanks added to the mint for the image and value sides. Therefore, it is a matter of chance which side of the coin the edge lettering can be read from and at which place on the coin edge it begins.

Countless new candidates are knocking on the door of the EU. Will these countries also issue their own euro coins later on?

Potentielle neue EU-Kandidaten müssen zunächst eine Anpassungsphase von mindestens 2 Jahren durchlaufen, bevor sie in die Währungsunion aufgenommen werden. Dann allerdings werden diese Länder wie alle anderen über Euro-Münzen mit einer eigenen nationalen Münzseite verfügen.

How should I store my coins?

We recommend storing your coins in the case or plastic capsules that we sent you. The room where you keep your coins should be dry with a normal room temperature (it should not be subject to wildly fluctuating temperatures).

What do the various letters mean on the coins?

The letters represent the following mints:

A for Berlin
D for Munich
F for Stuttgart
G for Karlsruhe
J for Harmburg
