New 2-euro commemorative coin

The newest Belgian 2-euro commemorative coin is dedicated to Louis Braille (1809 – 1852) and the 200th anniversary of his birthday.

Louis Braille is the inventor of braille, the world-wide system used by blind and visually impaired people for reading and writing. The inner part of the coin features his portrait between his initials L and B, in the alphabet that he designed.

The coin is available to the public through the normal channels, including the counters of the National Bank of Belgium in Brussels or at one of its branches.
