The 2 cent euro coin (€0.02) has a value of one-fiftieth of a euro and is composed of copper-plated steel.
All coins have a common reverse and country-specific (national) obverse.
It has been used since Cyprus adopted the euro in 2008.
It was chosen in a public vote, and the exact design was created by Erik Maell and Tatiana Soteropoulos.
They chose an effigy of King Albert II designed by Jan Alfons Keustermans, Director of the Municipal Academy of Fine Arts of Turnhout.
Estonia: The Estonian design is a design by Lembit Lõhmus and features a geographical image of Estonia and the word “Eesti”, which means “Estonia”. This was the winning design in a public vote of ten announced in December 2004. Finland: The Finnish design depicts the heraldic lion of Finland found on the Coat of arms of Finland.
It is a reproduction of a design by the sculptor Heikki Häiväoja and has been used by previous Finnish coins such as the 1 markka between 19.
The design of the 1 to 5 cent coins was intended to show the European Union's (EU) place in the world (relative to Africa and Asia) as opposed to the one and two euro coins showing the 15 states as one and the 10 to 50 cent coins showing separate EU states.
The national sides, then 15 (eurozone Monaco, San Marino and the Vatican who could mint their own) were each designed according to national competitions, though to specifications which applied to all coins, such as the requirement of including twelve stars (see euro coins for more).
