The common sides of the euro coins show three different maps of Europe, with a background including the 12 stars of the European Union.
The design of the common sides of the 10, 20 and 50 cent and 1- and 2-euro coins has been modified during 2007 to reflect the enlargement of the EU in 2004. The new common designs have been introduced progressively as from 2007, and have become mandatory for all new coin production from 2008.
