The Hellenic Ministry of Finance - General Accounting Office is pleased to announce that as of 2/1/2012 the new 2€ commemorative circulation coins with year mark 2012 celebrating 10 years of euro banknotes and coins, will circulate.

The issuing volume is 1.000.000 coins. The design to center of the coin symbolises the way in which the euro has become a true global player in the last ten years and its importance in ordinary people's lives (represented by the people in the design), trade (the ship), industry (the factory) and energy (wind power stations). Around the image is written the “2002 2012” as well as the issuing country ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗ ΔΗΜΟΚΡΑΤΙΑ.

The design of the common side and the edge lettering is the same with the 2€ circulation coins with the normal design.
