Euro coin minting costs
Question for written answer E-012515-13
to the Commission
Claudio Morganti (EFD)
Various Italian media outlets have recently carried reports on the cost of minting euro coins.
Those reports indicate that it costs more than four cents to mint a one-cent coin and more than five cents to mint a two-cent coin — i.e. well over twice the coins’ nominal value.
Would the Commission find out how much it costs to mint one-, two‐ and five-cent coins in Italy and the other eurozone Member States, and then pass on that information?
