100 years University Tartu - 2 euro Estonia 2019

  Joachim     18-09-2019     Comments (0)

Let's get straight to the point: Estonia 's new 2 euro coin commemorates the 100th birthday of the University of Tartu . Time to get to know the birthday boy! The University of Tartu was founded in 1632 by the Swedish King Gustavus Adolphus and is both the oldest and the biggest university of Estonia. Wait a minute! 1632, that was 387 years ago! Why are the Estonians celebrating the university's 100th birthday then? Well, in 1919, after the German troops retreated and Estonia gained independence, the University of Tartu was named Estonia's state university and Estonian became the university's main language. That event was 100 years ago, hence the 2 euro commemorative coin ! 2 euro commemorative coin Estonia  2019 100 years University of Tartu Planned issue...

  Joachim     13-09-2019     Comments (0)

Vatican City has chosen to portray one of its most famous tourist attractions on its new 2 euro commemorative coin : the Sistine Chapel . This year, we're celebrating the 25th anniversary of the restoration of the Sistine Chapel. In 1994, dehumidifiers, air conditioning and filters were installed in the chapel, as the outdated technology was no longer able to cope with the growing number of visitors. The 2 euro coin depicts a fragment from Michelangelo's The Last Judgment , a beautiful painting that can be found behind the Sistine Chapel's altar. The fresco, and as a result also the coin, shows Jesus Christ and Mary and is widely praised for its powerful dynamism and emotion. In short, by adding this 2 euro commemorative coin to your collection, you also acquire a beautiful...

100 years Universal Suffrage - 2 euro Luxembourg 2019

  Joachim     10-09-2019     Comments (0)

Luxembourg ’s new 2 euro commemorative coin  depicts the well-known head of Grand Duke Henry, as well as a hand depositing a ballot paper in a ballot box. The theme of the coin, and as a consequence also the theme of this blog post, is 100 years of universal suffrage in Luxembourg . Let’s start by taking a closer look at the definition of universal suffrage . The all-knowing Wikipedia describes universal suffrage as “the right to vote of all adult citizens, regardless of wealth, income, race, or ethinicity, subject only to minor exceptions”. That basically means that all citizens of a country are allowed to cast their votes. Most European countries introduced universal suffrage in the first quarter of the 20th century. For Luxembourg that was the case in 1919, exactly 100 years ago. And...

  Joachim     05-09-2019     Comments (0)

The latest 2 euro coin from Germany and France commemorates one of the most important events of Europe's history: the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall . For that reason, this blog post will be a quick history lesson. After the Second World War, both Germany and Berlin were divided into 4 occupation zones: 3 allied zones and a communist one. The tensions between the west and the communists during the so-called Cold War led to the construction of a wall separating West-Berlin and the communist East-Berlin in 1961, tearing the city and its inhabitants apart. The wall was knocked down in 1989 , an event that would eventually lead to the reunification of Germany and the end of the communist regime in Eastern-Europe. Both Germany and France are celebrating the 30th birthday of this...
