Monégasque euro coins feature two separate designs for the first two series of coins, and also two separate designs for the €1 and €2 coins for the first series. All the coins are inscribed with the word "Monaco" and the twelve stars of Europe. The Monégasque euro coins are minted by the Monnaie de Paris (Paris Mint).

In Monaco the euro was introduced in 2002. However, the first sets of coins were minted, as preparation, in 2001. Hence the first euro coins of Monaco have minted the year 2001 instead of 2002.
