Now here’s something new – a 2-Euro-coin commemorating the Easter Rising 1916, which has just been released (and which I got as change in a Lithuanian store). It shows the statue of Hibernia on the roof of the General Post Office, with a sort-of-sunburst behind it.

Quite well done, I think, and sure to be out of circulation soon. Because, mark my words, these will be pocketed by the tourists as soon as possible.
