In 2007 Belgium issued a commemorative 10-euro coin to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, the EU’s founding document. The Treaty established the original European Economic Community among its six signatories; that Community has evolved over the decades into today’s 27-member European Union, of which the euro is perhaps the most tangible symbol.


The obverse shows a goose feather on top of a document, symbolizing the signature of the Treaty in 1957. Six lines are coming out of the pen, each representing one of the original members. The Eurostar logo is the special mark used on coins to indicate participation in the Europa Coin Programme.

The Europa Coin Programme, also known as the European Silver Programme, or the Eurostar Programme, is an initiative dedicated to the issuance of collector-oriented legal tender coins in precious metals to celebrate European identity. The issuing authorities of EU member countries voluntarily contribute coins to the Europa Coin Programme. Multiple countries have participated in the programme, beginning in 2004. Some coins are denominated in euro, others are denominated in other currencies. Europa coins are legal tender.

Mint mark: Head of archangel St. Michael is a patron saint of Brussels (Royal Belgian Mint).
Privy mark: Royal Belgian Mint director Romain Coenen (scale).




The reverse shows a map of the countries of the European Union. For the first time, it includes the countries of the new members Bulgaria and Romania.
