Postcards and Stamps of the Grand Ducal Family

I wanted to make a thread so that we may post postcards of the Grand Ducal Family members. Including the Grand Dukes sisters and brother.

Please post all that you may find....

I am posting (right now) so that I have found on Ebay while looking for some to purchase.

Have fun!

Thought that I would quickly throw these in, although not postcards, they are postage :) . Grand Duchess Charlotte.

I have some of Grand Duke Henri and Maria-Teresa at the celebration of their wedding on leaflets (stamps) and also some with the three Princes (Guillaume - Felix-Louis), I just don't know how to scan them right now, my scanner is messed up![FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]

Thanks for posting these wonderful pics ! They sure brought back some memories. I had a big scrapbook about the family in the eighties but my mom somehow misplaced them..:(

The child with Jean is definitely Princess Marie-Astrid! She was an adorable toddler.
In one of my books I have one pic of the birth of Prince Louis. I'll post it later on in the evening..

Do you have any pics of Alexandra when she was born? I have enver seen any pics of her when she was a baby.

Beate,

I am glad to see that ALMAB and myself arn't the only ones on the same page when it comes to the Luxembourg Royals. I would love to see the pic you have of Louis birth. I have yet to see any postcards/pics of Alexandra and Sebastian's birth. I do remember Corbis having some of Prince Sebastian.... I will post them in another thread.

Thank You again,

Chanel

A big interest in the Lux Royal Family in Austrailia huh? How cool! I am sure that there is more of an interest in the Danish Royal Family now that Mary Donaldson is not CP Mary of Denmark.... I am not sure how they are distributed. I wish I knew myself! Sweden is big on the postcard thing too!

Anyway, back to postcards... I really love old photos of royalty, especially from the less well-known families that one doesn't often get to see. There should be a thread in the forums exclusively for old pics.

Luxembourg's Euro coins with the strike of Grand Duke Henri

There are 8 euro coins denominated in 2 and 1 euros, then 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 cents. Every euro coin carries a common European face. On the obverse, each Member State l decorate the coins with their own motifs. No matter which motif is on the coins they can be used anywhere inside the 12 Member States. For example, a French citizen is able to buy a hot dog in Berlin using a euro coin carrying the imprint of the King of Spain. The common European face of the coins represents a map of the European Union against a background of transverse lines to which are attached the stars of the European flag. The 1, 2, and 5 cent coins put emphasis on Europe's place in the world while the 10, 20, and 50 present the Union as a gathering of nations. The 1 and 2 euro coins depict Europe without frontiers. Final designs were agreed at the European Council meeting in Amsterdam in June 1997.

1.and 2. front site
3. back site

And here is a link to all the Euro coins of the twelve countries which has introduced the common currency on 1st January 2002: http://www.giervalk.bravepages.com/Euro/euro.html
