On Monday 26th March, the Central Bank will issue a €2 coin which commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Treaty of Rome. Nearly 5 million of the Irish coins will be put into circulation here, and the other euro area countries will issue similar commemorative coins as well. All of the coins will have legal tender status throughout the euro area.

This is the first circulating commemorative coin to be issued by the Central Bank since the millennium £1 coin. The €2 coin features a design on the national side which represents the Treaty document and has the words ‘Treaty of Rome’, ’50 years’, ‘EUROPE’, ‘2007’ and the name of the issuing country in its own language. The Irish coin will have the words ‘conradh na Róimhe’, ’50 bliain’, ‘an eoraip’, and ‘Éire 2007’.

While the Central Bank will issue the new €2 coins to Irish banks on 26th March, it will take some weeks before they are widely available in circulation.

The Central Bank will also issue a proof circulation Irish coin set which contains nine coins, including the special €2 Treaty of Rome coin, in mid April 2007. An uncirculated coin set and a single uncirculated Treaty of Rome €2 coin will also be issued. Further information and an official order form for the coins are available from the Central Bank by phoning 1890 307 607 or can be downloaded here.
