    Description

    The year 2022 marks two major European events. The first of January 2022 celebrates the 20th anniversary of the introduction of the euro, replacing the franc and becoming at the same time the European currency of the member countries of the euro zone. In addition, France will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2022, 13 years after its last Presidency. It is in this conjunction of major events that the change of the national face of the French €1 and €2 currencies is taking place, two decades after the appearance of the European currency.


    This miniset features the new design of the €1 and €2 coins, officially put into circulation for the 20th anniversary of the euro. It contains the 8 French circulating coins dated 2022 and minted in Brilliant Uncirculated quality.


    This miniset contains the new €1 and €2 coins, designed by Joaquin Jiménez, Engraver General of the Monnaie de Paris.The new €1 coin is produced exclusively for this series as well as for the BE 2022 series.

    The Collection

    Born of the desire to unify European territories and facilitate trade with a single currency, the euro was introduced by the signatory states of the Maastricht Treaty on 7 February 1992. Officially put into circulation at midnight on 1 January 2022, the euro sounded the death knell for the franc. Monnaie de Paris is celebrating the second part of the euro's anniversary in 2022 with a collection of gold and silver coins.

    Le 20ème anniversaire de l’euro est un évènement majeur pour le monde de la numismatique. Il m’a semblé important de rendre hommage au franc, qui céda sa place à la devise commune européenne en janvier 2002. On retrouve donc sur les monnaies 20 ans de l’euro un rameau d’olivier, attribut du franc, qui s’exprime 20 ans plus tard sous la forme d’un arbre sur la nouvelle face des monnaies de 1€ et 2€.
