France legalized abortion in Law 75-17 of 18 January 1975 (Veil Law), which permitted a woman to receive an abortion on the request until the tenth week of pregnancy. Simone Veil was a key figure in the legalization of abortion.

• Mintmark of the Paris Mint: cornucopia

Reverse

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.

12 stars are located on the right side of the outer ring, with six stars atop the map of Europe and six stars below it; six vertical stripes cut across the inner core of the coin, visually connecting the upper and lower star segments.

Luc Luycx, a designer at the Royal Belgian Mint, designed the Euro’s common reverse; his initials, LL, are seen on the right side of the design, just under the “O” in “EURO.”

Edge

The sequence "2 ★ ★" repeated six times alternately upright and inverted.
