Monaco - Euro Coin Sets

Monaco Started Using The Euro on January 1st 2002:



General Introduction:
On new year's day 2002, Monaco, like the other 11 members of the Eurozone, started using Euro notes and Euro coins for cash transactions. Within a few months, the old coins and banknotes in Lire were withdrawn. We have uncirculated sets from each of the twelve countries in stock now for immediate delivery. Images and descriptions of Monaco coins are shown below.


Packaging & Presentation:
We have uncirculated official mint sets of coins from all 12 Euro zone countries in stock during 2002, plus the three minor states including Monaco. Our Monaco Euro sets are packaged in an attractive card within a 2-sided plastic case so that the coins can be viewed from both sides or removed if required. We have information about official issue mint or proof sets. All of the countries will issue uncirculated sets, but many will not issue proof sets.

Official Sets Only:
For the 12 main countries, we have arranged supplies of coins to reach us in January 2002, and can therefore offer both our own sets and the official mint sets. For the three minor states including Monaco, the situation is different. For Monaco we can currently offer both the official sets, and our own unofficial sets, as shown below.
