The treasury of the Principality of Monaco have issued (13th November) a new €2 commemorative coin celebrating the bicentenary anniversary of the founding of the Princely Guard, or Compagnie des Carabiniers du Prince — which is the entity charged with the protection of the sovereign of Monaco as well as the princely family. Founded on the 8th December 1817 by HSH the Prince of Valentinois, Honoré Grimaldi, hereditary prince of Monaco and administrator of the principality, on behalf of his father, Prince Honoré IV, the Princely Guard have been the primary source of continual protection of the Monegasque sovereign for 200 years. Deeply attached to the princely family since their formation, the Palace Guards are proud of their motto: “Honour, loyalty, devotion.”
The coin is presented in a custom red leather case embossed with the crest of Monaco and includes a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Depicts a member of the Carabiniers in the style of uniform as they appeared at the time of their foundation in 1817 and a palace guard as they are seen today. The Prince's Palace of Monaco provides a background, and a commemorative text including the years 1817–2017 is placed just under the primary design. The 12 stars of the EU surround the entire motif.
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.
The sequence "2 ★ ★" repeated six times alternately upright and inverted.
