Commemorative €5 and €7.50 coins on way

Portugal’s Casa de Moeda (the national mint) is to produce two limited edition commemorative coins, one a €5 coin to celebrate 20 years of the euro, the other a coin for €7.50 to mark the 111th anniversary of the country’s Institute of Economy and Management (ISEG). The roughly 6,000 coins are very unlikely to enter into wide circulation (on the basis that most will be snapped up by collectors).
