Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

German euro coins have three separate designs for the three series of coins. The 1, 2 and 5 cent coins were designed by Rolf Lederbogen, the design for the 10, 20 and 50 cent coins is by the hand of Reinhard Heinsdorff and the 1 and 2 euro coins were done by Heinz Hoyer and Sneschana Russewa-Hoyer. Featured in all designs are the 12 stars of the EU and the year of imprint.

In addition to the year, the German coins also feature a small letter as a mint mark indicating the particular mint that minted the coin.

The letters were assigned to the mints as they opened. The mints in Hannover/Vienna (B), Frankfurt am Main (C), Dresden/Muldenhütte (E), and Darmstadt (H) have since been closed; the last, Muldenhütte, in 1953.

Future changes to national sides

The European Commission issued a recommendation on 19 December 2008, a common guideline for the national sides and the issuance of euro coins intended for circulation. One section of this recommendation stipulates that:

Article 2. Identification of the issuing Member State:
"The national sides of all denominations of the euro coins intended for circulation should bear an indication of the issuing Member State by means of the Member State’s name or an abbreviation of it."

A new design on the German euro coins is expected in the near future to comply with these new guidelines, although nothing officially has been announced.[2]
