Belgian euro

The euro of Belgium have a national symbol, consisting of the portrait of the King, which recalls the one already used in the Belgian francs coins.

The design of the first series of Belgian euro is by Jan Alfons Keustermas, Director of the Municipal Academy of Fine Arts in Turnhout, with a portrait of King Albert II and his monogram, consisting of the letter "A" underneath with a crown. The image of the king is surrounded by the frame of the 12 stars of the European Union.

In 2008 the coins were changed to comply with the guidelines on the design of national sides, with the following changes:

A new series was produced from 2009, with the same portrait of King Albert II used in the coins prior to 2008, but with the position of the year, the mint marks and the stars of the European Union of 2008.

In 2010 the position the mint mark and the symbol of the Director of the mint were reversed.

On February 4, 2014 a new series designed by Luc Luycx was presented, following the abdication of King Albert II in favor of his son Philip on 21 July 2013. The coin portrays the king's profile with his monogram, the symbol "BE" of Belgium, the year of minting with the mark of the mint Director Bernard Gillard to the left and the mint mark on the right.
