Two commemorative coins for the bicentenary of the battle of WaterlooTuesday, 09 June 2015 15:41
Belgian authorities therefore chose to create a commemorative 2.5 euro coin, which cannot be used as official payment. 100,000 copies will be made, and they will cost 6 euros. The Royal Mint also decided to create a silver 10 euro coin for the bicentenary. It features a key moment in the battle: the English officer Freemantle telling Wellington that their Prussians allies had finally arrived at the battleground.
The foreground features Prince William of Orange on a stretcher, having been shot in the left shoulder. There is a silhouette of Napoleon high on the left-hand side. 10,000 copies of this coin will be made. They will cost 42 euros. These 2 coins are for sale exclusively on the Belgian Royal Mint website.
