The First New Euro Coins

Design of the Euro coins

There are eight euro coins. Each euro coin has one side that is common to all 12 Member States. This design shows variations of the map of Europe. The designs for the European side were selected following a competition organised by the European Commission and were approved by the Ministers of the Member States.

The European side of the coins was designed by Luc Luycx of the Royal Belgian Mint and depicts a map of the European Union against a background of parallel lines linking the 12 stars of the European Union flag

The 1, 2 and 5 cent coins show Europe’s place in the world and the 10, 20 and 50 cent coins depict Europe as a group of individual nations. A united Europe without frontiers is represented on the EUR 1 and EUR 2 coins.

We now have only Austrian Euro coins in stock. Space doesn't allow us to show them all. Besides, you can see them here. Just contact us to order a set.

Austria

1 cent This coin shows a gentian, as the last part of the floral series, symbolising a duty to the environment and the part Austria is playing in the development of a Community environmental policy.

2 cent This shows the edelweiss, again as part of a floral series, symbolising a duty to the environment and the part Austria is playing in the development of a Community environmental policy.

20 cent This coin shows the Belvedere Palace, one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in Austria. This was where the Treaty re-establishing the sovereignty of Austria was signed in 1955, making its name synonymous with freedom.

50 cent This coin shows the secession building in Vienna, illustrating the birth of art nouveau in Austria and symbolising the birth of a new age, representing a bridge to a new monetary era.

1 Euro This coin shows Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the famous Austrian composer, depicting Austria as a land of music.

2 Euro This shows a portrait of the radical pacifist Bertha von Suttner, a symbol of Austria’s efforts over many decades to support peace.

The front of each coin has the same design for all 12 countries in the euro area. The reverse side displays different designs for each country, created by their own national artists. All coins can be used anywhere in the euro area.
