This second coin commemorates the 25th anniversary of the European Monetary Institute.
The European Monetary Institute was created by the Maastricht Treaty to manage the second phase of Economic and Monetary Union.
The Institute shall be granted the right to “formulate opinions or recommendations” on the general orientation of monetary and exchange rate policy and on the related measures taken in each Member State.
