May 11, 1998 was a very important date for the Euro currency. On this day, France activated the mint printing press that produced its first Euro coin. It is made of two alloys, with the inner part made of cupronickel, while the outer part is made of nickel brass.
By 2002, the €1 coin and other banknotes were introduced to the twelve-member Eurozone for usage. The reverse or common side of the coin was designed by Belgian artist Luc Luycx, who won a Europe-wide design competition. The goal of the design was to show the unity of the European Union.
The obverse or national side of the coins depends on the issuing country, but all have to include 12 stars, which symbolizes the EU. It also has the engraver’s initials and the year of issue. Some designs include famous people like Mozart for Austria and Pope John Paul II for Vatican City. Other countries like Germany, Lithuania, and Slovakia had their coat of arms.
As European Union’s members grew in size, the design in the common face of the coin was updated in 2007. The design shows the entirety of Europe as one continuous landmass and not just the European Union.
As of July 2019, there were approximately 7.5 billion €1 coin in circulation.
