Between 2006 and 2022, Germany issued a special 2 Euro coin from a Bundesland (province) every year, depicting an important object from that region. The theme of the 2007 German 2 Euro is the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania).
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, also known by its anglicised name Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, is a state in the north-east of Germany. It covers 23,176 km2, making it the sixth largest German state in area. Schwerin is the state capital and Rostock is the largest city. Other major cities include Neubrandenburg, Stralsund, Greifswald, Wismar and Güstrow.
The Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania €2 coin features Schwerin Castle.
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.
