Luxembourg EMU

Issued year - 2009, January
There it is. Depicted in the image, the second commemorative coin that Marián Sedílek, from Slovakia, sent me (see last post). One magnificent coin commemorating ten years of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), from Luxembourg, with a slightly different design from all the other countries (with vertical stripes in the center).
As a rule, euro countries may each issue only one €2 commemorative coin per year. Exceptionally, they are allowed to issue another, provided that it is a joint issuance like this EMU coin, and commemorates events of European-wide importance. These coins use a common design on the national side, showing the name of the issuing country as well as the event commemorated in the respective language(s).
Once again, thanks...

Issuing volume: 1.400.000
