2 Euro Commemorative Coins Cyprus

If we talk about 2 Euro Commemorative Coins Cyprus we refer to a whole series of coins minted on the occasion of special events, in honor of historical figures or perhaps to commemorate anniversaries important for the history of that country.

In this article we will analyze the Cypriot commemorative 2 euro coins. It has to be said, however, that this state does not have many commemorative coins as there are only 4 coins to date. Few if compared to other European countries, there are in fact states that exceed even the 20 different coins.

In any case, what we are going to do is to go and analyse every single Cypriot 2 euro coin, so that we can understand its characteristics, its history and the reasons that led to its creation.

The very first coin is a piece that, to be honest, all European states share. It is in fact the 2 Euro Commemorative coin minted in 2009 in honour of the 10th anniversary of the Economic and Monetary Union.

At the Obverse we can observe a very particular design that represents a stylized human figure with the Euro symbol next to it. This design indicates the Euro as the last step in human economic history, from the primitive barter to today.

It is important to stress in this respect that this design was also chosen by European citizens through an online survey involving all European citizens.

At the top we can see the arched inscription KYΠPOΣ KIBRIS and at the bottom the one ONE 1999-2009. Just below the symbol of the Euro, on the right, there are also the initials of the author ΓΣ.

All around as usual are engraved the 12 five-pointed stars representing the European states.

The reverse side of the coin shows the common side of all the 2 Euro coins.

The coin is included in the 2009 BU Divisional BU, in a BU Box and in a BU Capsule.

The next Cypriot commemorative 2 euro coins, also in circulation in all Euro countries, was minted in 2012 in honour of 10 years of Euro banknotes and coins.

At the Obverse we can in fact observe a very particular design. Also in this case we are talking about a design chosen by European citizens through an online survey.

Specifically, the design depicts the symbol of the Euro placed at the center of the globe, to reaffirm the importance of the euro for Europe.

All around then are placed various elements that reinforce this very concept. We can see, for example, human figures indicating citizens, a ship indicating trade, a factory representing industry and finally a wind turbine symbolizing energy.

At the top is engraved “KYΠPOΣ KIBRIS” and at the bottom the dates “2002 – 2012”.

On the outermost edge as usual are the 12 five-pointed stars representing the European states.

In alto a destra, a semicerchio, è presente la scritta “ΚΥΠΡΟΣ KIBRIS” e le date “1985 – 2015”. In basso a destra sono incise invece le iniziali dell’autore.
