Andorra Changes the Design of the 10c, 20c and 50c

AFTER
BEFORE

 

It seems that Andorra has slightly altered the common design depicted on the 10c, 20c and 50c. Without any notice, their official website is now showing new designs. It is not clear why but probably the design was not approved by the European Commission as it showing a person who looks like Jesus Christ.

Ar1us: Regarding Cyprus, you are right. I didn't know it is such old. :) I thought it belongs to the early Christian era...

Latvian coins will have this

DIEVS *** SVETI *** LATVIJU *** meaning GOD *** BLESS *** LATVIA

the maltese 1c, 2c and 5c show the temple where in pre-historic times people use to worship the sun (they used to believe that it is god as all the energy on earth comes from there) :D

so it is also a religious symbol

Ilioplius,

The 2013 Vatican cc coin will present the statue of Jesus in Rio...

The Cyprus 2euro and 1euro feature a cruciform idol of the chalcolithic era, not a christian cross, unlike Malta

the 8 points of the Maltese cross represent the 8 beatitudes (among others), namely;

Blessed are...

  • ...the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (5:3)
  • ...those who mourn: for they will be comforted. (5:4)
  • ...the meek: for they will inherit the earth. (5:5)
  • ...those who hunger and thirst for righteousness: for they will be filled. (5:6)
  • ...the merciful: for they will be shown mercy. (5:7)
  • ...the pure in heart: for they will see God. (5:8)
  • ...the peacemakers: for they will be called children of God. (5:9)
  • ...those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (5:10)

Ar1us: Actually, I am not aware of any Vatican coin depicting a Christian symbol. On the other hand, Dutch 2 € coins bear inscription "God be with us" and Cypriot 2 € and 1 € coins show the Christian cross. Regarding Slovakia, you are right.

To sum up, Christian symbols are already present on the euro coins and that is how it should be.

Being a theocratic state, the Vatican city has been consistently depicting christian symbols on almost every euro coin they have produced... Nobody has seemed to care about that, have they? Andorra, also a non-EU microstate, and Slovakia, a full EU and Eurozone member, are different in what way exactly?
