To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the European Union, euro-area countries will all issue this week a €2 coin showing the Piazza del Campidoglio in Rome where the Treaty of Rome was signed on 25 March 1957. This is the first time a coin will be issued by all euro-area members to commemorate the same event. It is thus the first time that a €2 coin with a common design on both sides will circulate throughout the euro area.

 

In total, the 13 euro-area countries will issue close to 90 million €2 coins, starting this week, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the European Union. The coin represents an open book – the Treaty – on a background of the paving of the Piazza del Campidoglio in Rome, where the Treaty was signed on 25 March 1957. The paving of the famous Piazza was designed by Michelangelo.
