Friendly neighbor

Last month, another friendly neighbor, Manuel Caja, from La Coruna, Spain, sent me these two rare and wonderful San Marino UNC coins: the 20 cent - shows a portrait of Saint Marinus, from a painting of Van Guercino, 17th century, and 50 centimes - shows the Three Towers: Guaita, Cesta and Montale, fortress of San Marino, in exchange of several portuguese currency coins. Muchas gracias, Manuel.
Now I must "only" get the 3 San Marino missing ones; 10 centimes, 1 and 2 €.

Most Serene Republic of San Marino is one of the European microstates and on the basis of an agreement with the European Union, can distribute Euro coins.
