    My friend went to Italy. She gave me these Euros to me knowing I’m looking at coins and my grandparents were from Italy.

    Yes that first one is very interesting. The sculpture featured on the front is by Umberto Boccioni and called Unique forms of continuity in space - from 1913. I studied futuristic and abstract art in the 90's

    For size comparison.
    Here are my 1999/2001 French 20c and 2001 50 cent
    The light is bad here today so they look a little silver in colour.

    The shave of the 20 is an elegant design. I think anyway. Pretty. Thanks for posting.

    Nice. I was so excited that my friend remembered to bring me some back from Italy. My dad had a couple of Italia but older.

    Lost many of dad’s foreign coins in the flood or taken while we were not at home during the flood. Not accusing of course but some things in our home were taken. I did not care about the other stuff, fridge etc, the personal things that have meaning.
