The 2 euro commemorative coins 2021 are issued on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the creation of the economic union between Belgium and Luxembourg and the 500th anniversary of the issuing of the second series of coins ordered by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.

The Belgo-Luxembourg Economic Union (BLEU) was concluded between Belgium and Luxembourg for a period of 50 years, creating a customs union and a currency union with the aim of strengthening cooperation and integration between both countries. On 25 July 1921, the first 50-year treaty was signed. The BLEU is still in effect today.

More information regarding the 500-year-old Carolus guilders can be found on the website of the Museum of the National Bank of Belgium

None of the 2 euro commemorative coins will be put into circulation, but they will be issued as collector’s items.

Note: official issuances commissioned by the Royal Mint of Belgium bear the mint master mark of the Belgian mint master, next to that of the Royal Dutch Mint (Koninklijke Nederlandse Munt). Other issuances not listed in the table below are not official issuances of the Belgian State.
