In 2007 all EU countries celebrated 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 collector coin is part of the Europa Coin Programme, also known as the European Silver Programme, or the Eurostar Programme. It 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.

Depicts the pavement pattern of the Piazza del Campidoglio, the seat of the Capitol Building in Rome, made by Michelangelo. In the centre, there is the letter R, for Rome, the place where the treaty was signed. On the right, the letter E, a symbol of Europe, is made by some geometrical elements of the pavement. On the left, incorporated in the pavement pattern, are the initials of the six signatory countries: "BE" for Belgium; "DE" for Germany; "IT" for Italy; "FR" for France; "LU" for Luxembourg; "NL" for the Netherlands. Below the pavement is the date, while above, around the rim, the twelve stars of the European Community.
