Ireland, 25 Euro Glinding Metal Squirrel
These Euro Pattern pieces were struck in 1996 by the International Currency Bureau. They were how they imagined the new Euro coins might be. The Squirrel 25 Euro Pattern was issued for Ireland. On one side the Irish harp and on the other a squirrel with the country name in Gaelic as Eire and the date 1996. It looks as if they are struck in gold but it’s gilding metal, which means this crown sized Ireland Squirrel Pattern 25 Euro is available for just £5.95.
