    Default Central Bank issues €15 commemorative coin

    The Central Bank has today launched a €15 commemorative coin. The limited edition €15 silver proof collector coin honours the first coins created by the Free State in 1928 and depict an Irish hunter horse pictured alongside it's foal. The coin was designed by Emmet Mullins and is a modern interpretation of the half-crown coin designed by Percy Metcalfe.

    The coin is the first in a series of three coins to be produced between now and 2012. Commemorative coins to come will feature the salmon and Irish wolfhound.

    The silver proof coin will be available to the public from tomorrow and will cost €36, only 15,000 coins have been produced.

    28.28 grams. .925 silver.

    What I'd like to know is: why have they raised the face value to €15 from €10?

    It'll be worth a fortune in 5 years when the euro is consigned to the bin.

    Is the central bank following the Anglo model, selling €15 worth of debt for €36 to the scmuck tax payer?

    It's quite pretty:

    Its great to see the Central Bank finally copping on and distributing precious metal real money into the system.
