The European Economic Community

The European Economic Community was founded in 1957 and has grown into the European Union of today.

The original members were Belgium, France, West Germany, Italy, Luxemburg and The Netherlands.

Denmark, Ireland and the United Kingdom joined in 1973, Greece in 1981, Portugal and Spain in 1986.

The former East Germany was admitted as part of re-unified Germany. Austria, Finland and Sweden became members in 1995.

Obverse

The obverse features the second definitive UK coin portrait of Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin.

Reverse

Britain was the ninth country to join the European Economic Community, and the reverse design chosen was intended to represent the concept of strength through unity, by showing hands joined in a circle. One hand is notably smaller than the other eight, and is believed to convey the fact that Britain was ruled by the Queen, hence the smaller, female, hand.
