1. Where will the mint mark be located in the new design?
2. Where are the designs for 2011 and 20012? The text says that they were already chosen ...
3. Garmany applying a D as a country identification: shall we expect something similar in the normal coins soon? It sounds logical to me ... wouldn't this be confusing with "Denmark" if the adopt the euro?

Wish they would continue, it's a lots nicer design than the new one.

The one that impacted German commemorative coins was that the stars in the out ring have to be represented as in the European flag, meaning, making a full circle in the outer ring. I presume they made the decision of removing the long name in order to win space. I personally like the new 2012 coin the most.
