Five Euro Cents 2010, Coin from Austria
CoinFive Euro Cents 2010

The Five Euro Cents coin (€0.05) has a value of one twentieth of a Euro and is composed of copper-plated steel. It is the third-lowest-value coin in the Eurozone. Like all other common circulation coins (from 1 cent to €2), the denomination is issued by the separate countries in the Eurozone and is legal tender in all of them, irrespective of which country has issued it. The coins have a common reverse (designed by Luc Luycx in 1999), and each country has its own national obverse; the Austrian obverse was designed by Josef Kaiser, and features an Alpine primrose flower as a symbol of Austria's part in developing EU environmental policy.

The denomination was introduced in 2002, when Austria retired the Austrian Schilling currency and introduced the Euro. The five-cent coin was not redesigned in 2007 as was the case with the higher-value coins.

Austrian Five Euro Cent coins issued in 2010 have now been in circulation for 14 years.

At centre, the obverse of the coin features an Alpine primrose flower. Around above, the value and denomination in German: FÜNF EURO CENT (five Euro Cents). Around below, the flag of Austria with "heraldic hatching" (thin vertical lines) indicating its colours: red-white-red.

Around below right in the inner circle, next to the stem of the flower, the date of issue: 2010.

Around the outer rim, the twelve stars of the European Union - symbolising the original twelve member states.

The reverse of the coin shows the globe below right, showing Europe in relation to Africa and Asia. The design of the 1- to 5-cent coins is intended to show the European Union's (EU) place in the world, as opposed to the one- and two-euro coins showing the 15 states as one and the 10- to 50-cent coins showing separate EU states.

Behind the globe, six diagonal lines connect the twelve stars of Europe - six around below left, and six around above right.

The designer's monogram LL (for Luc Luycx) is on the right.

Above left, the numeral value: 5; on two lines above, the denomination EURO CENT.
