Coin Simone Weil, 2 euro France

    A commemorative coin of 2 euro of France was issued in June 2018 in memory of the French politician Simon Weil, who died on June 30, 2017. The coin was minted at the French Mint with a circulation of 15 million units.

   On the obverse of the commemorative coin of 2 euro against the background of the meeting room of the European Parliament is a portrait of Simone Weil, the former Minister of Health of France, as well as the President of the European Parliament from 1979 to 1982. As a teenager, Simone survived deportation to Auschwitz. In memory of this, her camp number "78651" is indicated on the collar at the bottom of the coin. At the top of the coin is the name of the politician "SIMONE VEIL" and the years of her life "1927-2017." The center indicates the country designation "RF" and the year of coinage "2018." A little lower is another date "1975" - the year the Weil law came into force. Also at the bottom of the coin are the signs of the French Mint and the head of its engraving workshop.
