If you have visited a European country where the Euro is used and you happen to still have some coins with you, then you might want to take a closer look. It turns out that some 2 euro coins can be worth A LOT of money.

1. German Two-Euro Coins

Among the coins sought after by collectors is the two-euro coin minted in 2008 in Germany. Specifically, it's an edition with an error: the borders of the European Union countries, consisting of 15 member states at the time, are not outlined. This model was issued in only 30,000 copies. The more limited the issue, the higher the value of the coin.

2. Monegasque Two Euros

Some Monegasque two-euro coins minted in 2007 could be worth a few hundred euros. That year, 20,000 coins were issued to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Grace Kelly's death. These specimens, featuring the profile of the American actress who became Princess of Monaco in 1956 after marrying Prince Rainier III, can sell for between 600 and 1,000 euros.

3. Finnish Two Euros

Other coins to watch out for are the Finnish two euros from 2004. This coin was produced in one million copies to celebrate the European Union's enlargement to ten new member states. Its relatively large issue means its value isn't very high, worth about 60 euros. But it's still more than its initial value.

4. Vatican Two Euros

Collectors also seek the two-euro coins circulated in 2004 for the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Vatican City State (signing of the Lateran Treaties on February 11, 1929). On this occasion, only 85,000 copies were made. Its rarity makes it a prized item worth about 100 euros today, with its value varying depending on its condition.

5. Spanish Two Euros

This Spanish commemorative coin was released in 2012, on the tenth anniversary of the Euro. It was issued in 8 million copies, but 70,000 to 100,000 units have an error in the size of the stars on the edge. They are slightly larger than normal. This hard-to-identify anomaly increases the value of the coin.

6. Latvian Two Euros

Latvia only issued two-euro coins for circulation in 2014. A series for collectors was then released in 2015, followed by another in 2016. As production was not continued the following year, the two-euro coins minted in 2016 remain the country's most expensive, worth about 150 euros.

7. San Marino Two Euros

Finally, on the list of well-valued two-euro coins are those from San Marino, a small independent state located in Italy, minted in 2004. A total of 110,000 units were made in tribute to Bartolomeo Borghesi. In the center, the bust of the Italian numismatist and epigraphist was engraved, surrounded by his name. This coin is worth between 200 and 300 euros.
