Details The Year Set consists of: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 cent coins and 1, 2 euros celebrating the wedding of Prince Guillaume, Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg, and Countess Stephanie de Lannoy.

The wedding took place over a two-day period on October 19 and October 20, 2012. A civil ceremony was held on October 19 followed by a Roman Catholic wedding ceremony at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Luxembourg City the next day. The 2012 wedding marked the largest grand ducal event for the Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg and the country in years.

Luxembourg euro coins feature three different designs, though they all contain the portrait or effigy of Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg. The Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg appears on the coins facing to the left. Jean's portrait on the francs showed him facing to the right and it is common in a number of countries for successive monarchs to alternate the direction they faced on coins.
