|Celebrating UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Belgium. The fourth issue is dedicated to Belgian belfries. Twenty-three belfries in the north of France and the belfry of Gembloux in Belgium were inscribed by UNESCO as a group and as an extension of the 30 Belgian belfries inscribed in 1999 under the name Belfries of Flanders and Wallonia. Built between the eleventh and seventeenth centuries, they showcase the Roman architectural styles, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque.
The blister contains the 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 cent coins and 1, 2 euros (unc), as well as a commemorative silver medal.
The Belgian euro coins feature only a single design for all eight coins: the portrait or effigy of King Albert II of Belgium and his royal monogram (a capital 'A' underneath a crown). Also part of the design by Jan Alfons Keustermans (Director of the Municipal Academy of Fine Arts of Turnhout) are the 12 stars of the EU and the year of imprint.
[The 2 euros coin of 2008 is only included in this BU set]
