2EURO-2247

San Marino planned to issue a 2 euro commemorative coin in 2013, featuring former United States President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

the European Central Bank did not authorize the issue and cancelled its release. The official reason was that the theme could not be demonstrably related to San Marino and the country was forced to replaced it with a commemorative 2-euro dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the death of Pinturicchio.

State Mint and Polygraphic Institute

The Italian Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello Stato (trans. State Mint and Polygraphic Institute), founded in 1928, is situated at the Piazza Giuseppe Verdi in Rome. As well as producing coins, passports and postage stamps for Italy, it serves the micro-states of the Vatican City and San Marino as well as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, widely considered a sovereign subject of international law.

Banknotes are instead produced by Bank of Italy.

In 2002, IPZS became a public limited company (società per azioni or SpA) with the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance (Ministero dell'Economia e delle Finanze) as sole shareholder.
