I will be making a trip soon to Europe, and I am intending on getting one roll of coins for the €2 and €0.50 - and the countries will include (but not limited to!) France, Germany, the Baltic States and Finland.
The question is, how easy is it to get a coin roll or two especially if you are not a customer of that bank (especially in France!)
What are the easiest countries to get a coin roll or two in Europe? I almost learned the hard way last year when it took me at least four banks until I found one willing to sell me a small coin bag of each of the €2 and €0.50 (equivalent to a roll).
That said, from that CRH in Europe, I pulled six commemorative €2s, including an 2016 Irish Easter Rising and a 2006 Italian Turin Olympics, as well as one 2013 Maltese, an Unc 2015 Irish and a 2008 Cypriot.
From the €0.50s, I found several nice Uncs, including Irish 3x2005s, 1 2007 and 1 2009 (not a common date!) as well as a Maltese and a Cypriot (both 2008 and circulated).
