Pattern Euros

Updated 16/02/2010

On this page I will show the coins named Euro patterns that were issued since the year 2002.
The first coins issued were from the EU countries that don't agreed the Euro on January 2002. Late these issues were made for quick business with the coins collectors. Some coins are minted in high quality: the coins minted by the british International Numismatic Agency (INA) and the swiss Europ Mint are very good, there are other coins that have a poor design and quality.

If you have better images, new data or new issues please contact with me.
