Poland, 2004 Prototype Euro Pattern Set
This was one of a privately issued series of proto-types of what their Euro coins might look like if various countries were to join the Euro. This set was issued for Poland and contains 8 Prooflike Uncirculated patterns in the same size and composition that the actual Euros were struck in. 2 of them have Pope John Paul II, 3 have Kopernicus and 3 have Chopin on them. The set comes in a full colour folder with an explanation of the patterns. There were some problems with the countries involved and the collections went off sale. Now those problems have been solved and we were able to buy a small supply from a dealer who bought them at the time. We are offering them at the original issue price of just £19.50 but supplies are limited and these sets are now 17-18 years old.
