A real success story: Our programme Erasmus+

celebrates its 35th anniversary this year

To commemorate such event, the European Commission issued a €2 coin with a single national design by all euro area Member States.

Mr Joaquin Jimenez, a French medalist who works for the Monnaie de Paris (Paris mint), designed the coin.
The front side of the coin is the picture of Erasmus surrounded by the years 1987 – 2022 and the text ‘ERASMUS programme’. On the left, you can see the number 35, which stands for the anniversary of the programme.
