Italian - Euro Coin Sets

Italy Started Using The Euro on January 1st 2002:

On new year's day 2002, Italy, 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 Within a few months, the old coins and banknotes in Lire have been withdrawn. We have uncirculated sets from each of the twelve countries in stock now for immediate delivery.
In Italy, the euro coin designs were subject to scrutiny by a national technical and artistic committee before being presented to the nation on RAI uno, Italy�s largest national television station. A different design has been selected for each denomination, chosen from masterpieces by Italy�s famous artists.

Packaging & Presentation:
We have uncirculated mint sets of coins from all 12 Euro zone countries in stock now for immediate delivery.. Our Italian 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.
