The central design is encircled by the words “BELGIAN PRESIDENCY OF THE COUNCIL OF THE EU 2010” and the trilingual country designation in Dutch, French and German ‘BELGIE BELGIQUE BELGIEN’. Beneath the logo and above the country’s name, the year of issue, i.e. “2010”, is centred between the mint mark on the left and the mint master’s mark on the right. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.
