France 2-EURO (KM2256)


France adopted the euro in 1999, and 16 years later finally got around to issuing an animal coin.

This coin commemorates the 70th anniversary of the end of World War 2, and above the dove of peace are all the two letter country code abbreviations for all the countries that... I am not sure. That fought? That are part of Europe now? Under the dove is "RF" which I thought perhaps was for "Republique Francais" but their official code is FR.
