These Crown-Sized (38mm) Euro Pattern pieces were struck in 1996 by the Internation Currency Bureau. They were how they imagined the new Euro coins might look. This Squirrel 25 Euro Pattern was issued for Ireland and on one side you have the Irish harp and on the other a squirrel eating a nut with a forest in the background with the country name in Gaelic as Eire and the date 1997. They were stuck in gilding metal which looks like gold but they are much more affordable.
