The Irish euro coins are in Ireland in circulation Euro coins of the common European currency Euro . On January 1, 1999, Ireland joined the euro area , making the introduction of the euro valid as the future currency.

Circulation coins

The Irish euro coins all have the same design created by Jarlath Hayes . It shows a Celtic harp , a traditional symbol for Ireland . To the right of this is the year of issue , to the left is the country name ÉIRE (according to Irish spelling, in which most capital letters are similar to the lowercase letters in the Gaelic script), and on the edge are the twelve stars of the EU.

The Irish coins are minted in the Currency Center of the Irish Central Bank in Sandyford . The minting began in September 1999, but the coins minted from 1999 to 2002 were given the year of first issue 2002, so they will only have their actual minting year from 2003. A partial edition of the 1 and 5 cent pieces of the first year were produced by the Royal Mint . Likewise, 1-cent pieces were minted by the Monnaie de Paris in 2007 . The coins do not have any mint marks, so there is no way of differentiating them. The coin in the quality of proof was on the 2006 and 2007 Suomen Rahapaja , as well as 2009 and 2012 in the Royal Dutch Mint produced; as were the 2 euro commemorative coins of the same minting quality in Finland in 2007, and in the Netherlands in 2009 and 2012. So far, BH Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt , the Monnaie de Paris, the Royal Dutch Mint and the Croatian Mint in Zagreb have been commissioned with minting the collector's coins .

Like most euro countries, Ireland has been minting its euro coins with the newly designed front (new map of Europe) since 2007.
