Maps (backside)
Since 2007 all countries had to use a new, larger map of Europe on the common back side (for coins > 0,10 euro). This makes that there are two versions of all courant coins, one with the old and one with the new map. Not all countries were able to do this change in time (starting in 2007)

A summary by country
Countries that changed in 2007: Belgium, Germany, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Luxemburg, Netherlands and  Spain
Countries that changed in 2008: Italy, Austria, Portugal, San Marino en Vatican
Monaco changed in 2007, this means that only the 1 euro 2007 and 2 euro commemorative Grace Kelly have the new map
Newer countries used the new map from the start.

In our list you'll find two coins with changed maps for part of the coins. 2 euro 2008 Hamburg F (Germany) used the old map in stead of the new, and 2 euro Finland 2006 already used the new map (for small amount, 55 000 ex).



Other changes in the country side of coins:

* Finland started in 2007 coins with added FI.

These differences are also made on the page "single coins".


About the edges of the 2-coins:

2 eurocoins, courante coins and commemoratives have a text or image on the edges. Mostly there are 2 versions, we call these Position A and Position B.

If there is a text on the edges:

  • Position A = Put the face value up (2 euro and map). If you can read the text it's Positie A.
  • Positie B = Put the face value up (2 euro and map). If the text is upside down it's Position B.

 For coins with stars and number 2 (changing up and down) 2 ♠ ♠ 2 ♥ ♥ 2 ♠ ♠ :

  • Positie A = Put the face value up (2 euro and map). Pick a readable 2 and look at the start next to it on the right side. If the star has one pointy top, it's position A.
  • Positie B = Put the face value up (2 euro and map). Pick a readable 2 and look at the start next to it on the right side. If the star has two pointy tops, it's position B.


Portugal is different. You have small castles on the edges

  • Positie A = Put the face value up (2 euro and map). If the top of the towers point to the right, it's position A.
  • Positie B = Put the face value up (2 euro and map). If the top of the towers point to the left, it's position B.
This way there is a postion A or B with most of the 2 eurocoins. Some countries don't make a differens, like Malte, Estonia.
