2019 marks the centenary of the first sitting of Dáil Éireann. The first meeting of the Dáil was held in the Mansion House in 1919 and this was the beginning of a long journey, which has shaped our country into the progressive democracy it is today.

To celebrate this significant event in Irish history, the Central Bank of Ireland issued a €100 Gold Proof Coin on 07 February 2019. An Annual Mint Set and a Proof Set will also be issued which will contain the €2 commemorative coin.

Later in the year the Central Bank will issue two silver proof coins. One will celebrate 100 Years since the first Transatlantic Flight and the other will mark the 70th Anniversary of the birth of Irish musician Phil Lynott.

Proof Set 2019

This coin set will be of proof quality and will be presented in a rectangular coin box with a certificate of authenticity. This set will include the commemorative €2 circulating coin.

Issue limit: 1,000 pieces
