Germany Euro Coins - France and Germany right now are in celebration mood as the Pact of Elysee is 50 years old. To commemorate this they have decided to issue a joint 2 euro commemorative coin. This is also the first time in the history of the euro to have a common issue between some member states; in the past common issues were only allowed if it was issued by all the states.
The German and French 2 euro coins have the same design, only the French coin will have RF on it for Republique Francaise whereas the German one will have D for Deutschland - they will also have different mint marks.

Mint Mark F 2,640,000
Mint Mark G 1,540,000
Mint Mark J 2,310,000
France minted 10 million and thus the total issuance volume of this joint coin is 21 million.
