Issuing date: December 2015

Obverse

A partial reproduction of a young person casting a vote. The ballot that the figure is holding reproduces the inscription “ANDORRA”. To the left of the figure there are the years that are being commemorated “1985” and “2015” (the latter is the year of issue of the coin as well). A shorter inscription of the commemoration surrounds the whole design “30 Years Since 18 Became Legal Age". The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.

Reverse

A geographical map of Western Europe spans the outer ring and inner core on the right side of the coin. The inscription 2 EURO is superimposed over the map of Europe, with the numeral “2” located in an open field representing the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

12 stars are located on the right side of the outer ring, with six stars atop the map of Europe and six stars below it; six vertical stripes cut across the inner core of the coin, visually connecting the upper and lower star segments.

Luc Luycx, a designer at the Royal Belgian Mint, designed the Euro’s common reverse; his initials, LL, are seen on the right side of the design, just under the “O” in “EURO.”
