  Ireland – Éire

All Irish euro coins depict the Celtic harp, a traditional symbol of Ireland first used on coins in 1536, accompanied by the word ‘Éire’, the Irish word for Ireland. The design was the work of Jarlath Hayes and was chosen by the Irish Government. The edge lettering on the €2 coin is ‘2**’, repeated six times, alternately upright and inverted.
