It was a quiet evening at home, until….
Germany, 2 eurocents, 2004-D (KM #208)
The D is for the Munich Mint, where this coin was made. The mintage is 133,490,000, and its worth about 2.6 cents USD. It’s hard to get excited about this coin, and there’s not much to say about the euro. Germany is one of the Big Four of the Eurozone (Germany, France, Italy, Spain) who together represent that large majority of Eurozone economic activity. Thus their coins are the most common through the Eurozone. Estonia just joined the eurozone last Saturday! I wonder how long it’ll be before I find one of their eurocoins.
