New national sides of euro circulation coins

2014/C 75/02

Euro circulation coins have legal tender status throughout the euro area. The Commission publishes all new euro coin designs (1) with a view to informing all parties required to handle coins in the course of their work as well as the public at large.

Belgium has updated the design of the Belgian national face of euro coins to be produced from 2014 in order to illustrate the change in the position of the Head of State. Coins from previous years featuring the old Belgian national face will remain valid.
