    I am a coin collector from England and I have the first two coin of the 5 Euro series although not the proof versions of the coins, I was wondering if it would be possible to order any of the proof versions of the coin from your firm and if not possible with the proof versions maybe the ordinary version as I think it is still very impressive, I am sorry about my email being in English as I don’t speak or write any German and hopefully you understand english or you are able to use a translator program, I hope to hear of you soon about my query and thanks for your time
