@ Robi from Brussels:

Gerhard Schön, author of "Euro Münzkatalog"
wrote in a forum that the designer of the 2008 serie, Luc Luyc, altered the king's portrait without autorisation ("Dem Vernehmen nach hat Luc Luycx das Porträt unbefugterweise modifiziert").

The coins of 2009-2013 depict the king again as originally designed by Jan Alfons Keustermans for the first serie (1999-2007):

Hi Roberto!

by chance I just found your post (usually I get emails when there are new posts and I was wondering why there were none for some weeks). I do hope your health will improve pretty soon and that you will recover completely!

That is far more important than printing any poster!

Apart from the Austrian National Bank I did not yet find another "official source" considering Finland 2007 a new serie.

Concerning Belgium 2009, I have not the slightest doubt that is has to be considered a new serie, because the king's portrait had to be changed. Seems to be just diplomatic restraint not to make that "Belgian withdrawl" too obvious by announcing a once again altered serie...

Hi Gerd!

I'm really sorry, I didn't forget about printing your Euro poster. Unfortunately, since the beginning of this year I have some health troubles :-(. Thus, at the moment, not only the poster but the entire collection is on hold.... I hope it will be for just an unlucky period! But as soon as I will get on track, I will keep my promise! :-)

It's quite interesting that you found an "official source" as the Austrian National Bank, which considers Finland 2007 as a new series. Indeed..... this bring us to deeper reflect again on the issue. Mmhh....:-/

Did you find other "official sources" which share the same view of the Austrians?

And in any case, I would conclude that (in case) the doubt regards only the Finland 2007 and not the Belgium 2009 series.

As I said..... to further reflect and discuss on this!

Ciao, Roberto

I don't know, I just like the images from ECB website better because they look similar to the other coins – they are more realistic and, for example, Belgian and Latvian ones do not contain black-coloured areas.

It might be just a matter of taste, though. :)

By the way:

The Austrian National Bank / Oesterreichische Nationalbank considers the Finnish coins of 2007 as serie 2 :

Hi Illioplius,

The poster already contains the Belgian, Dutch and Latvian coins - why do you think an update is advisable ?

This site offers images with a higher resolution than the one you mentioned:

Hi, if you want, you can update the images of Belgium, the Netherlands and Latvia. See https://www.ecb.europa.eu/euro/coins/html/be.en.html etc.

@ Robi from Brussels:

What happened to your plans of getting the poster printed ??

By mistake there was a white spot within the Austrian 20 Cent coin. I corrected this and here is the new 34-plus version:

And, finally, the XXL version for those who recognize amendments being separate series:

The 35-plus-version (with the amendments of Belgium 2009 and Finland 2007 and even 2008), including the common sides on top:
