Celebrating 10 Euro Years

A week or so ago I got my first 2€ coin that celebrates 10 years of the Euro.

ECB's info on this special coin.

I have to say that I cannot help but wonder if this is, indeed, the moment to be celebrating the Euro.

That said, I do believe this might be the first (and only) time that something in Frankfurt has ever been celebrated on a coin: if I’m not mistaken, that structure just to the left of 2002 (and consequently a wee-bit upside down) is the European Central Bank building in Frankfurt. I can only tell because there appears to be a gigantic € statue in front of the building, just like the one in Frankfurt.
