2. Bi-metallic 1 and 2 Euro new design......by Martin Peeters, Netherlands
The designs of euro coins will change slightly in 2007. Based on the decision
taken by the Ecofin Council in June 2005, coins minted from the beginning
of 2007 will have new common and national sides.
Amendments to the common sides concern the maps presented on the coins.
The map on the current 1 and 2 euro coins illustrates the European Union
as one entity, whereas the map on the current 10, 20 and 50 cent coins illustrates
the EU as a group of separate states. However, these maps only comprise the
15 old EU Member States. After the introduction of the euro the EU enlarged
by 10 new countries in 2004, and a further two countries, Romania and Bulgaria,
will join at the beginning of 2007. The maps on the coins will be amended
to cover the whole of Europe.
Amendments to the common sides will affect the 10, 20 and 50 cent coins
as well as the 1 and 2 euro coins. By contrast, the common sides of the 1,
2 and 5 cent coins are not affected. The map on these coins shows Europe
in relation to Africa and Asia on a globe.
The national sides of euro coins will be amended so that each issuing Member
State will add its name or abbreviation on the coins. Amendments to the national
sides affect all denominations of euro coins. Each euro area Member State
will decide on the schedule for the introduction of their new coins.
