Portuguese - Euro Coin Sets

Portugal Started Using The Euro on January 1st 2002:

On new year's day 2002, Portugal, 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 Within a few months, the old coins and banknotes in Escudos have been withdrawn. We have uncirculated sets from each of the twelve countries in stock now for immediate delivery.

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

The Portuguese Mint has advised us that it has not issued any Euro coins dated 1999, 2000, or 2001. Its first, and therefore only date so far is 2002, this applies to circulation coins and also coins in official sets.
