Euro Coin Collection Update 3.9

ErasmusNew and eagerly awaited update for the app Euro Coin Collection.

All 19 coins of the common issue dedicated to the Erasmus programme (EuRopean Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students), officially issued on 1 July 2022, have been added.

The design is a mix of two major elements of the programme: the original intellectual inspiration and the allegory of its influence over Europe.
The first one is symbolised by one of the most known depiction of Erasmus of Rotterdam, the second one by a beam of links going across the coin from a point to another, representing the numerous intellectual and human exchanges between the European students.

Also, 4 2 Euro commemorative coins issued for 2022 have been added.

Among them is the Estonian one dedicated to Ukraine, whose design shows a female figure protecting a bird in her hand together with an ear of corn.

More coins and new features in the next update! 😉
