European coins are featured in this section of the coin blog. Since there are so many countries in Europe, and they are allowed to mint commemorative coins, there is often a need for a European Coins article. The Royal Mint of the United Kingdom, the Paris Mint, and the Austrian Mint are prolific in production.
One particular source of nice coins is the European Silver Programme, Eurostar, which often has a gold version of coins as well. This is a long-standing program of coins with an annual theme.
One reason the coins of Europe are of particular importance is they often show the art, culture, or history of one of the many European nations.
