Belgian euro coins

The euro (EUR or ) is the common currency for most European nations within the European Union, including Belgium. The euro coins have two different sides; one common, European side showing the value of the coin and one national side featuring a design chosen by the EU member state where the coin was minted. Each member state has one or more designs unique to that country.

For images of the common side and a detailed description of the coins, see Euro coins.

Belgian euro coins feature only a single design for all eight coins: the portrait or effigy[?] of King Albert II of Belgium and his royal monogram[?]. Also part of the design by Jan Alfons Keustermans are the 12 stars of the EU and the year of imprint.
