The Belgian euro coins feature only a single design for all eight coins: the portrait or effigy of King Albert II of Belgium and his royal monogram (a capital 'A' underneath a crown).

Also part of the design by Jan Alfons Keustermans (Director of the Municipal Academy of Fine Arts of Turnhout) are the 12 stars of the EU and the year of imprint.

 


Albert II (Albert Felix Humbert Theodore Chretien Eugene Marie) was born on June 6, 1934. He is the current King of the Belgians and a constitutional monarch, member of the former ducal house of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.
