New national sides of euro circulation coins

2014/C 410/06

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.

Spain has updated the design of the Spanish national face of the 1 and 2 euro coins to be produced from 2015 in order to illustrate the change in the position of the Head of State. 1 and 2 euro coins from previous years featuring the old Spanish national face will remain valid. The designs on the other denominations remain unchanged.



Issuing country : Spain

Date of issue : January 2015

Description of the designs : The design on the Spanish 1 and 2 euro coins feature the effigy of the new Head of State, His Majesty King Felipe VI, in profile to the left.

The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
