Monégasque euro design

For images of the common side and a detailed description of the coins, see euro coins.

In Monaco the euro was introduced in 2002. However, the first sets of coins were minted, as preparation, in 2001. Hence the first euro coins of Monaco have minted the year 2001 instead of 2002.
