In 2009, Germany issued a circulating commemorative €2 coin to mark the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) (in German: 10 Jahre Wirtschafts- und Währungsunion - abbreviated to WWU).
It is part of a joint commemorative by 16 members states, where each country issued a €2 coin with the same design but with national texts.
Germany has five mints which strike circulation coins; they are distinguished by their mint marks - A for Berlin, D for Munich, F for Stuttgart, G for Karlsruhe and J for Hamburg. The set contains five coins with the same design, each struck by a different mint and with its respective mint mark. The quality is proof, which in German is called Spiegelglanz.
