On the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of German reunification, this series highlights Franco-German reconciliation and the narrow link which unites Helmut Kohl and François Mitterrand, both instigators of a stronger economic Europe.
The face of the currency represents François Mitterrand's statesman profiles in the foreground and Helmut Kohl in the background. Their names are indicated near their profile. The European flag and its 12 stars are represented with the mention RF in their center. Two of the Drapeaus stars have largely grown in order to represent the French and German flags and therefore to strengthen their role in European construction. The flags are colorized on the € 10 silver and use the codes of heraldic colors.
The back of the pieces highlights the reunified Germany by recalling the border that separated the RFA from the GDR. The mention "thirtieth year of reunification" is affixed throughout the territory, as if to seal the unity of the country. This sentence is also mentioned in German around the part of the room as well as the 2020 vintage. The facial value of the room is present in the German territory.
