The Europa Coin Programme, also known as the European Silver Programme, or the Eurostar Programme,is an initiative dedicated to the issuance of collector-oriented legal tender coins in precious metals to celebrate European identity. The issuing authorities of EU member countries voluntarily contribute coins to the Europa Coin Programme. Multiple countries have participated in the programme, beginning in 2004. Some coins are denominated in euro, others are denominated in other currencies. Europa coins are legal tender
All the coins must bebe at least 900 fine silver and of proof quality.Coins should be approximately “crown sized” -this allows for national traditions and customs.Coins must show the Eurostar logo distinctly, and visible to the naked eye, but not be integral to the coin’s design.
