On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Easter uprising in Ireland in 1916, the Mint decided to issue the 2 euro mint in the same state in honor of this event. Let’s see how it is made and how much the coin costs 2 Euro Hibernia.
Let’s start with the story. Easter Rising was a revolution founded by the Irish people during Easter week in 1916. The goal of the people was to gain independence from Great Britain as soon as possible. They did not succeed at that point, because the British army overthrew the rebellion in a very short time. But, of course, it was the forerunner of the independence that officially gained independence from December 6, 1922.
In 2016, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Easter uprising, the Irish Republic decided to print a 2 euro coin to commemorate this historic event. Let’s go and see how the coin is made.
Features and value of 2 euro hibernation coin
Like all other coins in the same category, it is bimetallic. It therefore has a gold-colored interior made of a nickel-brass alloy and a silver-plated exterior made of copper-nickel alloy. It is 25.75 mm in diameter, 2.20 mm thick and weighs 8.5 grams. In terms of the opposite face, it has the same design as the 2 euro models from other European countries. The nominal value on this face is 2 euros and the map of Europe passes through 6 lines connecting 12 stars.
On the other hand, on the other hand, we see the representation of the statue of Hibernia in the middle. The same statue displayed above the Irish Parliament building. On its sides are the years 1916 – 2016. Above is an inscription in large letters “Hibernia” and below is an inscription “Eire 2016”.
The coin is considered general because it has a total of 4,500,000 pieces. So, it is not difficult to find one of the other coins in your pocket. Obviously, if that happens, the coin will not be worth more than its face value of 2 euros. If you have a Fior de Conio, you can sell it for around യൂറോ 4. The coin card version costs around യൂറോ 15, as does the bookmarked version. Finally, the box version can sell for 30 euros.
