You think that every 2 Euro coin is worth 2 Euro ? I say that´s definitely wrong and perhaps also in your money bag there are treasures you did´t recognise before. So check it up because with a bit luck you´ll get the 400 fold of your coin back when you sell it to the right person.
For example the 2 Euro Vaticano proof of 2002 was recently traded to 400 € per coin. Although it´s very unlikely that you will find such a coin in your pocket the treasure hunt would be profitable, because there are many other 2 Euro coins which are worth more than 2 Euro. For clarification here are the top ten of the most expensive 2 € coins.
- Place : 2 Euro Vaticano 2002 Proof 401 Euro
- Place : 2 Euro Monaco 2007 BU Grace Kelly 302 Euro
- Place : 2 Euro Monaco 2001 BE 269 Euro
- Place : 2 Euro Monaco 2006 BE 189 Euro

Enhancement in value of up to 15.000 %
Euro coins sometimes have an enormous virtu the so called starter-kits the bags in which the first Euro coins had been dumped had an enhancement in value from 100 to 15.000 % in the last 6 years. So if you bought a starter-kit of the Vatican in 2001 for 3.88 € and never opened it till today it would be worth 600 € that a betterment of 15000 %. The set of San Marino on the other hand had an enhancement in value of 5000 %. Also very coveted are Euro coins with min-defects for example when the wrong map is printed on the coin or wrong digits or rims can be seen.
But not every county in the EU got the Euro here is a map of the countries were the Euro was estimated as an official currency. Theses countries are the green ones.
