Coin "800 years since the construction of the first castle on the rock" 2 euro Monaco

    The jubilee coin of 2 euro is timed to coincide with the beginning of the history of the Principality of Monaco, when in 1215 the first fortress was built on its territory. The coin was minted by the French Mint and released in November 2015 with a circulation of 10,000 units.

   The obverse of the commemorative coin depicts a fortress tower on top of a rock. Under the image in a semicircle is the inscription "FONDATION DE LA FORTERESSE" ("BASE OF THE FORTRESS"), on both sides of which the years "1215" and "2015" are indicated. At the top of the coin is the name of the principality "MONACO" next to which the signs of the French mint (left) and the master of the mint (right) are engraved. On the outer ring are 12 stars of the European Union.
