This is an interesting video showing how the â¬2 coin is made. This coin consists of two different metals that are squeezed together into one coin. Interestingly, it uses recycled copper -- I wonder how many construction sites have lost their copper piping to thieves who then sold it to recyclers for manufacture into Euros? I also have embedded a second video that discusses the history of coin making as well as describing how less complex coins are made.
Another look at coinmaking (admittedly, not as fancy as most Euros):
Ah. I wonder, how easy is it to make them at home? :)
The difficult thing is getting it so that the chocolate doesn't melt.
So I've been told.
but I'm curious as to which country that 2â¬ coin is from... I don't recognise it and I thought I had all of them! must be a special edition... or perhaps San Marino, haven't seen those... :s
