Irish Euro Coins


Ireland was one of the founding members of the Euro zone and started issuing coins in 2002. Some basic facts relating to Éire(Ireland).




Irish Euro Coins have only one motif for all eight coins - the Celtic harp. In addition Ireland up to 2017 has only minted one Commemorative Coin of its own.

Those of you who have ever been to Ireland will know that it is a land of great national beauty with a rich history - such potential for an interesting set of coins!

Dublin alone could supply eight motifs - but no we have only a Celtic harp.

Let us hope that in the future Ireland will draw on its great resources and supply us with some wonderful Two Euro Commemoratives Coins.
