€2 French Presidency of the EU (2008)
€2 commemorative coins are special euro coins minted and issued by member states of the eurozone since 2004 as legal tender in all eurozone member states. Only the national obverse sides of the coins differ; the common reverse sides do not. The coins typicallycommemorate the anniversaries of historical events or draw attention to current events of special importance.

The number of commemorative coins is limited to two (before 2012 to one) per country per year and to 5 percent of the total mintage output.

COIN

French Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the second half of 2008

The inner part of the coin shows the inscription 2008 PRÉSIDENCE FRANÇAISE UNION EUROPÉENNE RF; the mint mark and the mintmaster's mark are located below, to the left and the right respectively. The twelve stars of the European Union surround the design on the outer ring of the coin.

ENGRAVERS

Obverse: P. Starck
Reverse: Luc Luycx

MAP II

As the EU's membership has since expanded in 2004, 2007 and 2013, with further expansions envisaged, the common face of all euro coins from the value of €0.10 and above were redesigned in 2007 to show a new map.
