Portugal 1 Euro coin Type 2 variant

I’ve just discovered that the only two 1 Euro coins from Portugal in my collection are both Type 2 variants, since their edges have 3 x 28 stripes, instead of the regular 3 x 29.

In the picture below you can see the two portuguese Euros on the top and on the bottom, while the center Euro is austrian, which I’ve inserted between them to make the edge stripes comparison clear.

Just count the stripes! 😉

I put one of those Type 2 coins in my collection and the other one in the swap list, both lists in the Ecpc file format, of course.

Did I mention swap list files? There’s a surprise coming up in the next few days… 8)
