50th anniversary of Élysée Treaty

50th anniversary of Élysée Treaty

Signature of Élysée Treaty After many centuries of rivalry between France and Germany, which shook Europe and the world, on 22th January 1963, the Élysée Treaty, a treaty of friendship between the two nations, was signed by Charles de Gaulle on behalf of France and Konrad Adenauer for Germany.

The Treaty led to the reconciliation of two populations, with city twinning and exchanges in culture, language, business and many other fields!

2 Euro coin fo Élysée Treaty To mark the 50th anniversary France and Germany are releasing a common 2 Euros coin.

A nice coin for a great anniversary! I think all of us should remember what a great thing the European cohesion is. The only downside is maybe the variety of coins and values...  :D

There are quite a few spelling errors in this.  Would you like a native English speaker to rework this?
