Comments

The legend on the coin differs between countries since each country issued it in their own language, but the image is the same. The Treaty of Rome established the European Economic Community and ultimately led to the introduction of the euro in 1999 as an electronic currency and euro banknotes and coins in 2002. The anniversary of this was celebrated on 25 March 2007, and Eurozone countries have celebrated this by issuing this commemorative coin, where the design was selected by a competition of the European mints.
