Commemorative issue

10 Years of Euro Cash

Obverse

The world in the form of a euro symbol in the center, showing how the euro has become a global player over the last ten years. The surrounding elements symbolize the importance of the euro to ordinary people (represented by a family group), to the financial world (the Eurotower), to trade (a ship), to industry (a factory), and to the energy sector and research and development (two wind turbines). The designer’s initials, “A.H.”, can be found (if you look very carefully) between the ship and the Eurotower. Along the upper and lower edges of the inner part of the coin are, respectively, the country of issue and the years “2002 – 2012”. The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European Union.
