Submit your design for the common 2-euro coin to commemorate 10 years of euro cash

If you are a citizen of an EU Member State whose currency is the euro and you are or will be at least 12 years old by the end of 2011, you can submit your design proposal via this website.

The website is open for submissions between 29 April and 20 May. You may submit only one proposal.

If your design wins, you will see the design you created, and your initials, on millions of euro coins that will circulate in all euro-area Member States [1]. In addition, you will be awarded a high-value collector's set of euro coins.

You must follow the detailed design requirements and technical specifications as well as the other terms and conditions indicated in the section Terms and conditions, so please read this section carefully before starting to prepare your design.
