I got them, I got them !!!! All ?15.25 of them (40 coins). [if you can't see the euro sign before the 15.25, it's simply because use.perl can't cope with it it seems. *sigh*]
I actually tried to buy them yestereve at midnight, but no one would sell them to me. So I got up at 8 this morning (something highly unusual believe me) and rushed to buy my euro kit.
The coins can't be used before Jan 01, but it's well worth seeing them. The designer of the french euros went a bit crazy on the back side of the 1 and 2 euro coins (the front of the coins are the same for all countries, but the back is country specific. Of course, you can use them everywhere, only the look changes). It's some sort of strange tree that looks a bit like a mysterious symbol from a remote civilisation, a touch psychedelic with all the shiny stars around it (but without the psychedelic colour-blind colouring). I can't wait for it to become legal tender so that we get to see the designs from other countries.
Anyway, I'd better stop being so excited about it here before some of our weird friends that live north west from here start looking at me strangely. Oh, too late, Matt Sergeant already called me names
