Always a treat, the Official Austrian Euro Coin Set 2012 has the added bonus of containing the 2 euro coin issued to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the introduction of euro banknotes and coins. Designed by the Austrian Mint’s very own Helmut Andexlinger, the competition-winning coin will be issued in all 17 eurozone countries. 

Ideal as part of a collection or as a fitting souvenir of Austria, the Euro Coin Set 2012 contains all eight pieces, from 1 cent to 2 euro, in superlative Proof quality. As 1 euro and 50 cent coins are not being produced for circulation in 2012, anyone wishing to own all eight 2012 euro and cent coins is advised not to miss out, by purchasing this comprehensive set.    

2 Euro

The focus of the Proof quality Euro Coin set 2012 is the 2 euro coin issued in all 17 eurozone countries in commemoration of ten years of euro banknotes and coins. Created by Austrian Mint designer Helmut Andexlinger, the coin was the winning design in a competition that attracted more than 800 entries.

In addition to the map of Europe, Helmut Andexlinger’s artwork shows the euro as a currency of worldwide importance, around which the vital role played by the currency is depicted. People are represented as a family, trade is symbolised by ships, the financial world by the European Central Bank, and industry by a factory, while wind power highlights the progress made possible by the euro. In addition, the coin features the country and year of issue as well as Helmut Andexlinger’s monogram.
