Central Bank of Ireland 1916-2016 commemorative coin

Post by Mac » 09 Feb 2016 19:22

The Central Bank of Ireland has produced an attractive commemorative coin of the centenary of the 1916 Rising.
The coin is presented in a variety of packaging, and will also circulate as ordinary currency, so we can all own one at face value—the best way to encourage potential collectors to start a collection :)

The Rising took place over Easter Weekend, 1916, and was the first step which lead to Irish independence.
