6a. A common commemorative coin issuance for 10 years of euro cash (AAT)
Since some years it is standard practice that euro-area Member States together issue a commemorative euro coin with a common design to celebrate particularly important events.
On 1 January 2012 it will be 10 years since the introduction of euro banknotes and coins, which is a natural and obvious occasion for all euro-area countries to issue a common coin. Council will be asked to endorse the issuance in 2012, by all euro-area Member States, of a commemorative 2-euro circulation coin with a common design to mark 10 years of euro cash.
