    2€ COINS
    :
    When travelling in Europe this year please be very alert when you get 2€ coins in your change. Evidently Turkey has issued a new coin (1 Yeni Turk Lirasi) which is at a glance the same as a 2€ coin. These coins have little or no value in Europe and are appearing in parts of France. They have the head of Ataturk on the obverse side and can be mistaken for the Spanish, Belgian, etc…coins.
