This nice coin was minted in the years you see on the left. Difficult to found are: 2001.
The new coin, struck from the beginning of September, was to celebrate the growing unification of Europe by showing a map of Europe. The map was made in a stylistic way; Denmark was shown as part of Germany. East Germany was left off of Germany. The Netherlands was part of Belgium! After receiving diplomatic protests Italy quickly introduced a corrected version of the coin, other million new coins was struck only during the last few weeks of the year. Mintage is high for two types: 1997 wrong map and 1997 correct map
