With miles of spectacular coastline, an abundance of unspoilt rivers and freshwater lakes, Ireland is known the world over as an angler’s paradise. The pursuit of the Irish Salmon has captivated anglers for centuries and is deep rooted in Irish tradition. The salmon originally featured on the pre-decimal florin and later, the ten pence coin - with a depiction of a spectacular leaping salmon. The Central Bank of Ireland is issuing a three year series of Euro coin packs honouring the animals of Irish coinage. For 2011, the second pack in the series, the featured animal is the salmon. The Irish 2011 Uncirculated Euro Coin Set is an attractive and informative display folder featuring images of the salmon and Irish fishing. 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 2011. This colourful presentation folder is a perfect gift for coin collectors and anglers alike.
