What do the new €2 coins arriving in our wallets represent?

Notice to collectors and travelers, the European Commission has just revealed the design of the new €2 coins. These coins have the same technical characteristics as the previous ones but their national side includes a highly symbolic commemorative design on the national or European level. Only €2 coins have the right to display this special face. Thus, Germany, Belgium and Spain have decided to use this right to highlight monuments and episodes in their history.

Belgium inaugurates its new coin on the occasion of the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union 2024. Swallows in flight, which move together as a group while giving each member individual room to maneuver symbolize the unity of the Union. During the flight of the swallows, one of them takes the lead and leads the group, as Belgium does in the first half of 2024 with this rotating presidency.

For its part, Germany is introducing two new currencies. The first is the image of one of the sixteen German Länder and represents the Königsstuhl, an emblematic formation of chalk cliffs and beech forests located in the Jasmund National Park on the island of Rügen. The second celebrates the 175th anniversary of the Frankfurt Constitution with St. Paul's Church and representatives of the national constitutional assembly. Three feminine allegories - Unity, Justice and Freedom - and the black, red and gold tricolor flag highlight this founding element for the German state.

Finally, Spain is not left out with the arrival of two coins. One highlights the 200 years of the creation of the national police as a state security force. Its design represents the emblem of the Spanish National Police, surrounded by the following legends “ESPAÑA-POLICIA NACIONAL 1824-2024”. The second commemorates the recognition of Seville as a UNESCO World Heritage Site with the Real Alcazar of the Andalusian capital.

Each of its new pieces will be produced between 1 and 30,000,000 copies. Intended for circulation throughout the euro zone, these will enter circulation during the first half of this year. Recently, La Monnaie de Paris revealed the new faces of the 10, 20 and 50 cent coins which will honor pantheonized women... but we will have to wait until June to have them in our hands.
