  Monaco

Monaco has issued two different series of euro coins, one in 2002 and one in 2006.

The 2002 series features the effigy of His Highness Prince Rainier III on the €2 coin, and the effigies of Prince Rainier III and his son Prince Albert II on the €1 coin. The 10, 20, and 50-cent coins reproduce the seal of the Prince of Monaco, and the 1, 2, and 5-cent coins show the coat of arms of the Sovereign Princes of Monaco.

Following the death of its Head of State, Prince Rainier III, Monaco issued a new series of euro coins in 2006. The portrait of His Highness Prince Albert II features on the €2 and €1 coins, and his monogram is depicted in the 10, 20, and 50-cent coins. As in the 2002 series, the 1, 2, and 5-cent coins show the coat of arms of the Sovereign Princes of Monaco.

In both series, the edge lettering on the €2 coin is ‘2**’, repeated six times, alternately upright and inverted.
