2003 I received the following reactions:
* From Gerhard Schön, author of Euro Münzkatalog (Schön): If you look into the 3rd edition of Euro Münzkatalog (Schön), pp. 31-32, you will find that Germany plans to mint 1 euro coins dated 2003 A and J for circulation (D, F, G only for the sets), and that all four mints plan to mint 2 Euro coins for circulation.
