On 10 July 2007, the Council of the European Union approved Cyprus' application to join the euro area on January 1, 2008.
The euro (EUR) replaced the Cyprus pound (CYP) at the irrevocably fixed exchange rate of €1 = CYP 0.585274.
The Cypriot euro coins bear the name Cyprus written in both Greek and Latin alphabets, representing the two national languages of Greek and Turkish.
American artist Erik Maell and Greek artist Tatiana Soteropoulos were chosen by the Central Bank of Cyprus to create and illustrate the designs to be used for the final coins, who were awarded a prize of CYP 5,000.
