2023 Luxembourg numismatic program

The 2023 Luxembourg numismatic program includes two commemorative 2€ coins, two BE coin sets, one BU annual coin set and four collector coins. The two 2€ coins in proof version will be minted by the Mint of Slovakia and will be highly sought after. Among the collector coins, the one ounce silver grand ducal birth coin and the ad hoc 2023 pandemic hero coin are also expected to be popular with collectors.

 


€2 175th anniversary of the Chamber of Deputies


 

Following the constitutional reform of 1848, the State Chamber became the Chamber of Deputies and marked Luxembourg’s entry into a modern parliamentary system. This transformation of the chamber follows the constitutional reform of 1848.

UNC: 120 000 coins for circulation (rolls and bulk) – this version of the coin is struck by the Monnaie de Paris (french mint).

BU: 7500 coincards at the price of 17€, high relief version minted by the KNM and 2500 coins in the annual divisional BU (½ of the total circulation of the 2023 annual BU of Luxembourg)

Proof: the coin will be in an annual proof set minted at 1,000 sets and in a special 2022/2023 €2 coin set minted at 2,500 sets. These coins will be minted by the Mint of Slovakia.

For each of the two commemorative €2 coins minted by Luxembourg, there will be three versions of the coin with the different marks of the mint that struck the coin. The coins with the Slovak mintmark will be the rarest and therefore the most sought after by collectors. They should very quickly reach a price above 100€-150€.
