|The coronation of the new Belgian king and the first appearance of his portrait on circulations coins is the theme of the 2014 BU set issued by the Royal Mint of Belgium.
The national designs on the Belgian euro coins represent elements of the coins previously in circulation. A national panel made up of leading Belgian officials, artists and experts in numismatics chose the motif used on all the coins. 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 set contains denominations that will not appear in general circulation (10 and 20 cent, 1 and 2 euro). The set also contains a medal with a double (king and queen) portrait.
