In 2008, Belgium made a slight modification to the design of its national sides in order to comply with the common guidelines recommended by the European Commission. These required, among other things, that the circle of 12 stars representing Europe appear as in the European flag - i.e. continuous in a circle with nothing intruding between any of the stars.
The new national sides continued to bear the effigy of His Majesty Albert II, King of the Belgians, encircled by twelve stars, but the royal monogram and the date of issuance featured in the inner part of the coin – not in the outer ring – together with two new elements: the mint marks and the abbreviation of the country name (‘BE’).
The inner section shows an effigy of King Albert II in profile facing to the left. The royal monogram (crowned A II) and the indication of the country (BE) on the right. Date below, surrounded by the mint director's privy mark (left) and mintmark (right). The outer ring of the coin depicts the twelve stars of the European flag.
A globe, next to the facial value, shows Europe in relation to Africa and Asia.
