Monaco's first set was a Type 3b.  The 1 euro design depicted Prince Rainier III (left), who was the reigning monarch at the time, alongside Crown Prince Albert, who is now Prince and head of state.

So, we have had ten Type 3a sets but only two Type 3b sets.

We had only one Type 2b set. The Type 2b and Type 3b sets both have different designs for the 1 and 2 euros coins. In total there are only three such sets. It is evidently not a popular (or common) option.



Finally we come to the Type 4 set, where every design on the national side is different.

So, we have six Type 4 sets in total.


The final analysis:

Type 1:    Seven sets.
Type 2a:  Four sets.
Type 2b:  One set.
Type 3a:  Twelve sets.
Type 3b:  Two sets.
Type 4:    Six sets.



Type 2b and 3b sets, where the 1 and 2 euro designs are different, are not popular

Type 3a, where each tier has a common design, is the most common type, with twelve sets.

Type 1, with only one national design per set, is surprisingly common, with seven sets. Their common design helps with instant recognition.

Type 4, where each national design is different, is the third most common option, with six sets.

I've added a poll so that you can vote for your favourite design structure.

Type 1.  Examples: Ireland, Estonia.

Type 2a. Example: The Netherlands. A common design for the six lowest denominations, and another design shared by the 1 and 2 euros.

Type 2b. Example: Finland: A common design for the six lowest denominations, and two separate designs for the 1 and 2 euros.

Type 3a. Examples: France, Germany.  One design per tier.

Type 3b. Example: Andorra. A design for tier 1, another for tier 2, and two separate designs for the 1 and 2 euros.

Type 4. A different design for each coin.

Perhaps you would like to see a design structure that has so far not appeared? How about a four tier structure:

1, 2 cents.
5, 10 cents.
20, 50 cents.
1, 2 euro.

Or maybe not. It doesn't follow the metal content. Would any other options appeal to you?
