2 Euros conmemorativa. X Aniversario del Euro. Abre en ventana nueva.

Citizens and residents of the Euro zone selected the award-winning design for the new Euro coin that will commemorate the tenth anniversary of banknotes and coins in the Euro currency. About 35,000 people took part in online voting to choose one of the five designs that had been pre-selected by a professional jury from among those submitted in a contest open to the public of the entire Euro zone.

Helmut Andexlinger's award-winning design symbolizes the way in which the Euro currency has transitioned over the last ten years to acquire undeniable weight worldwide and the importance it has on the life of the man in the street (represented by the people shown in the design), on trade (the ship), industry (the factory) and energy (the wind farms).
