This issue commemorates the centenary that has passed since the 1916 Easter Rising and the Proclamation of the Irish Republic, as read by Pádraig Pearse outside the GPO on O’Connell Street in Dublin on April 24, 1916.

It is the first time Ireland has released its own commemorative €2 coin marking an event in Irish history.

The design was chosen following a competition that saw 52 Irish and international designers submit proposals based on the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. It features a representation of the statue of Hibernia (the historic personification of Ireland) on top of the GPO (General Post Office), the centenary dates, and the name 'Hibernia' in hand-rendered lettering, influenced by the Book of Kells.
