The Central Bank and Financial Services Authority of Ireland is issuing a new three year series of Euro coins packs honouring the animals of Irish coinage. For 2010 the featured animal is the horse. Ireland can truly be called the land of the horse as this beautiful and elegant animal has been at the heart of Irish culture for centuries. For many years a delicate representation of a horse graced the reverse of the Irish halfcrown, and later the twenty pence coin. The Irish 2010 Uncirculated Euro Coin Set pays tribute to the horse in Ireland with an attractive and informative display folder featuring images of the horse in Irish life. Enclosed within the folder, protected from handling, are the eight Irish euro coins from the 1 cent through to the €2. Each of the coins bears the year date 2010. This colourful presentation folder is a perfect gift for coin collectors and horse lovers alike.
