Portugal 2009 - 2 euro commemorative - Economic and monetary union
10th anniversary of the Economic and Monetary Union (1999-2009).
The piece shows a primitive drawing gathered to the symbol of the euro (€). It reflects the idea that the single currency and, by extension, the economic and monetary union are the culmination of the long history of trade and economic integration in Europe.
The room is issued by each country in the euro zone and bears its name as well as the legend "EMU 1999-2009" in the country's language (s).
The graphics were chosen from five drawings preselected by citizens and residents of the European Union, who voted online. He is the work of George Stamatopoulos, engraver at the Hôtel des Monnaies de la Banque de Greece.
A map showing the Fifteen States of the European Union Soudés is represented on a dynamic canvas made up of the twelve stars of the European Union.
