Europa star

Europa Star is a unique programme that was launched in 2004, bringing various European monetary institutions together around a common theme.

Emblematic coins

In 2020, the Gothic period is highlighted in the Europa Star series. Each of the coins in this series has the unique characteristic of being marked with an «E» logo as an allusion to the € sign, together with a stylised star. The programme was relaunched in 2016 with two new features: a shared graphic motif for all of the obverses and a thematic line defined over five years highlighting five eras in European history.
