Proof-quality commemorative coins are minted with a polished die, finished, and placed in a protective clear plastic casing set in an elegant package. The package includes a certificate of authenticity that indicates the coin's technical specifications.
The design of the special two-euro piece paying tribute to the 30th anniversary of the EU flag was chosen through a design contest organised by the European Commission. A total of 62 submissions were made by Eurozone mints, and a preliminary jury selected five submissions for voting by EU citizens.
The obverse of the Pan-European special two-euro coin is the same in all countries. A run of 500,000 commemorative two-euro coins will be released in Finland.
