There are eight denominations of euro coins. The largest are the €1 and €2 coins, followed by 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 cent coins. One side of each coin depicts its value while the other carries a unique design from the issuing country.
Some countries, such as Ireland, choose to have the same design on the national side of all their coins. Others, such as Italy, have different designs for each denomination. The value side of each denomination of a euro coin remains the same, regardless of where in the eurozone the coin was originally issued. Despite the many variations, any euro coin may be used to pay for goods and services wherever the euro is used as currency.
