For euro gold and silver commemorative coins of other countries see Euro gold and silver commemorative coins.

2 Scudo[edit]

San Marino has adopted the Euro since 2002 as its currency, However in a means to maintain its own cultural identity it continues to issue a gold commemorative coin in its former currency the scudo released with a value of 2 scudo. Since there is a fixed exchange rate between the scudo and the euro and since the euro is San Marino's official currency the 2 scudo coins will be included in this article.
