Belgium "New Euro Coin Set After King's Abdication"

The king of Belgium, his majesty Albert II has just announced that he will abdicate his throne on the 21st July 2013. As the standard coins of Belgium feature the king, this will mean that Belgium will issue a new set of standard coins. Belgium already has two series of standard coins (plus an amendment) and thus this will be the third series for Belgium.

lefa... Every fifteen years the issuing state can change the design.

However, there is rimor of a proposal to abolish the national sides on the 1c, 2c and 5c coins and use a common one so that to minimize costs.

I always take for granted that Belgium has already 3 series of euro coins. And I will consider the new serie of 2014 as the fourth one for Belgium, regardless EU considers there are now only two series.

What is the EU rule for a non-monarchy country to change its nation side? Never?
