German €2 commemorative coins

The €2 coins with a commemorative design are regular coins , which are accepted as legal tender in all euro-area countries. Although these €2 coins with a commemorative design are more commonly referred to as commemorative coins, they are nonetheless officially classed as “standard” regular issue coins, which, like all other regular issue coins, are brought into circulation in large quantities by the Bundesbank. For reasons of simplicity, the literature pertaining to these coins on the relevant websites of the Federal Ministry of Finance, the German Sales Agency for Collectors’ Coins and the European Central Bank also refers to these coins as commemorative coins.

In line with European agreements, the German government has decided to bring an additional €2 commemorative coin into circulation each year with a different national motif on the reverse side. The coin series marking the federal states consists of a total of 16 different €2 coins, each one bearing a unique symbol or building specific to the respective state. The series began in 2006 with the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein and the "Holsten Gate" as its motif. A new coin is minted each year for each of the federal states, in order of the rotating presidency of the Bundesrat (the upper house of the German parliament representing the federal states). For 2019 a coin with the motif "Federal Council" is planned.

On the web pages of the European Commission (EC) and the European Central Bank (ECB) the €2 commemorative coins of all the countries are displayed.
