Luxembourg was one of the six countries that issued a Commemorative Coin in the first year (2004) that Commemoratives were allowed.

All the Commemorative Coins issued by Luxembourg are connected to the monarchy.

This coin commemorates the 80th anniversary of the use of the grand ducal monogram on Luxembourg coins.The coin has a number of interesting features.

In the inner circle is the head of the Grand Duke, looking towards the left. On the right is the monogram.

An unusual feature is having the twelve stars of the EU within the inner circle. This is the only commemorative where this happens.

Within the outer ring, we have the issuing country ”LËTZEBUERG” (twelve to two o’clock), “HENRI - Grand-Duc de Luxembourg”(seven to three o’clock), the year of issue ”2004” (ten o’clock) and preceding and following the year, the sign of the mint director and the mint mark.

2,500,000 coins were minted.

See you next Monday with a new coin and a new country.
