I received my Austria "60 Jahre zweite Republik" today, directly from the Austrian Mint.

 

It's a silver 10 euro commem, and I think it's gorgeous :ninja:

 

There should be a picture somewhere, in a thread, but I can't find the thread.....

Yes, the Austrian coin is definitely a keeper! Got to give the Austrian Mint credit as most of their coins are very detailed and have strong eye appeal!

Got that one from Spain too. Here is an image of that €12 coin (unc., in the original bag):

... and this is the €10 piece (proof) issued on the same occasion:

(Not my site/pics.) As for the "12", well, that is a little odd, but it is the equivalent of the former 2000 pesetas coins (12 EUR is 1996.63 ESP). And since such collector coins hardly ever show up in everyday life ... :-)

 

Yesterday I got the Irish €10 coin dedicated to William Rowan Hamilton (see separate thread) and the Year of Science, by the way. Interesting design ...

Glad this one got saved myself, as I have come back to the images for reference several times.

Said it before, say it again, you have some very nice coins there.
