Gold coin 50 ECU from Belgium

Two varieties of the Belgian gold ECU were minted. Between 1987 and 1988, the coins were minted with a purity of 90%. Where the coin weighs 17.28 grams. From 1989, the Belgian ECU was minted in 99.9% gold, weighing 15.55 grams. In both cases, the amount of pure gold is the same.
ECU stands for European Currency Unit, a forerunner of the Euro. However, the ECU did not have the function that currency normally has for citizens, but was mainly used to minimise fluctuations between national currencies and international financial transactions. The International Monetary Fund's SDR currently performs the same function. This coin had a face value of ECU 50. The Belgian 50 ECU has different designs, as each year has a unique design. This version of the coin depicts Charles V.

The obverse of the coin features the emperor Charles V. Surrounding the portrait of Charles V is the Latin text CAROLVS. D. G. ROM. IIMP. HISP. REX. DVX. BVRK. C. F. This means ‘Charles, by the grace of God, Roman Emperor, King of Spain, Duke of Burgundy and Brabant and Count of Flanders’.


The reverse of the coin shows the face value of ECU 50, along with the year of issue. The 12 stars symbolise the 12 countries of the European Monetary Union. In outer ring, the country of origin is indicated. In fact, this coin was issued in four countries, the Netherlands, France, Germany and Belgium.
