The inner section shows an effigy of King Albert II in profile facing to the left. The outer ring of the coin depicts the twelve stars of the European flag, among which is situated the royal monogram and year.

Albert II (born 6 June 1934) reigned as King of the Belgians from 1993 until his abdication in 2013. Albert II was the fourth monarch to abdicate in 2013, following Pope Benedict XVI, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, and Emir Hamad bin Khalifa of Qatar. In doing so, he was also the second Belgian monarch to abdicate following his father, King Leopold III, who abdicated in 1951, albeit under very different circumstances.
