2010 - Bremen
The national side shows Bremen town hall with the statue of Roland, which together symbolise the Republican history and tradition of Bremen. The coin portrays a true-to-life depiction of the Weser Renaissance facade of the old town hall in the background and, in the foreground, an enlarged image of the Roland statue. The word "BREMEN" links the town hall and the Roland statue with the federal state. The outer ring features the European stars, the year of issue 2010 and the letter "D" indicating that the country of issue is the Federal Republic of Germany.
The mark of the mint producing the coin has been incorporated unobtrusively in the main part of the coin. The artist's initials can be found in the lower section of the coin (below the Roland statue).
The national side has been designed by Bodo Broschat of Berlin.
The materials used, technical parameters and design of the European side of the €2 commemorative coin are identical to the regular issue €2 coin.
