Ireland, 2 eurocents, 2002 (KM #33)

The harp has been used on Irish coinage since they started striking their own coins in the 1920s. The symbol has endured both the switch from pre-decimal to decimal coinage and the switch from the Irish pound to the euro. The mintage is 354,663,386, making this the most common year of its type. It’s worth 2.7 cents USD today.
