I have strangely high amount of Italian coins :p

0.20 (2 coins) Germany
0.15 (2 coins) Spain
0.10 (1 coin) Portuguese
0.05 (1 coin) Netherlands

And I'm leaving out my coin collection upstairs here

Besides one of those old collection albums I have full (1 cent - 2 euro, from the first 15 or so Euro-countries)

On top of that:
2 euro:
Belgium:
- 60 years of Universal Human rights
Germany:
-Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
-Saarland
-10 years of Economic and Monetary Union
Greece:
-Normal coin
Ireland:
-Normal coin
The Netherlands:
-50 years Treaty of Rome (2x)
-10 years of Economic and Monetary Union
Vatican
-Normal coin

1 euro
Portuguese:
-normal coin
Vatican
-normal coin

50 cents
-Greece

Old money
France
-a few coins, going back to 1950 or so
NL
-lots of coins, going as far back as 1800!

-All coins and paper money up to 500. (collected those during school trip to Germany and Czech Rep. )
Croatia
-Mostly small coins
India

How did you get them? The only Vatican coins that are put in circulation are the 50 cent 2010-2011-2012. Other denominations are minted in small quantities and sold to collectors for a lot of money.

French coins aren't that common in Italy. I'd say that, after the Italian coins, most common are Austrian (1,2,5,10 cents) and Germans (larger denominations).

A vending machine, a couple of years ago, gave me a Sammarinese 50 cents as change. I guess someone didn't know it was more valuable than its mere denomination and put it into circulation.

It's not that weird. San Marino throghout the years released different times coins for the circulation, that probably don't worth more than face value if already circulated. I have 2 1€ 2010, a million of them was put in circulation. I keep them but they probably worth 1€ each. Unless your 50 cent is dated 2004, 2009, 2010 or 2011 (they were put only in mint sets and not in circulation) it's not so weird.

General elections in the Netherlands today. Just going through the online newspapers to see how they are doing. I am glad a lot of you can't read Dutch. Badly written comments, a lot of them racist from Dutch readers, with the biggest nonsense that you could ever imagine, would only give the impression that the Dutch are among the dumbest on earth. Actually, the Dutch masses are not very bright, especially the ones that go on vacation in Austria. Modern times I guess.

What are the masses like in your country? And do they make sense when they comment on a newspaper report? Or do they irritate you?

What about average online l comments in newspapers? A lot of times I find comments from Americans better found, and a lot better written, then those from the British.

Depends on the paper. I find comments on Washington Post or New York Times articles more reasonable than those on the Telegraph, for example.

Although that depends to some extent on the topic, and I admit on my own biases on the topic in question. And I can't explain how the Telegraph became my go-to site for British news.

I am a Times reader myself. And for online news I turn to the BBC. I don't know if you ever have heard of the international news forum called topix.net , because even on there the Americans, will all their different opinions a lot of times make a lot more sense to me then the chat-abacadabra writing Brits.

BBC World News - the 24-hour* news channel available outside the UK - became available on my cable carrier around last Christmas; I've been watching it a lot since then, although sometimes I have an urge to throw things at it. There's an hour of the World Service available between 9 and 10 a.m. on many public radio stations; I used to turn it on at work, but haven't done that in months: a lot of the announcers seem to have rather loud voices and I have a low noise tolerance. And if I have something I actually need to think about for work, having the radio on is out of the question for me.

I was avoiding American political coverage - it's too agitating and my vote's not up for grabs - over the summer, but lately I put on MSNBC in the evenings, until I'm not in the mood. Which means I haven't seen much BBC lately.

Never heard of topix.net; nowadays I glance at the New York Times and Washington Post on line and flip through the office's copy of the former.

*except weekends, when they get silly.

Right.

So we already got a name if it is going to be a boy. Can we please have suggestions if it's going to be a girl? If you'd be so kind enough to let us know within 9 months, thank you very much.

Which online papers are you referring to? I agree that the current sentiment is far from healthy, a lot of people are just unhappy for some reason and are blaming everyone but themselves. However, if you're referring to Nu.nl or Telegraaf.nl, I (still) feel they are not really representative. Some comments on these sites make me puke.

Congratulations by the way!

NU.nl probably has millions of daily readers, but only a fraction of them comment on articles, often there are maybe 300 - 500 comments and a large number of them are indeed mindnumblingly stupid, but it's hardly representative of the whole country, which gives some hope.

A friend of me told me this was from the Vatican, but looking at some pics on google they look nothing alike?

I'm gonna recheck some other coins first... I'll try and post a pic of the coins later.
