The obverse image is based on a gold stater of the Eburones.

Set of 4 coins 1-2-5-10 ECU issued by Royal Mint of Belgium in occasion of the 150th anniversary of the foundation of the Royal Belgian Numismatic Society and the 100th anniversary of the first International Congress for Numismatics. Minted in ECU as the future coins for Europe.
