The UEFA 2008 European Football Championships were jointly hosted by Austria and Switzerland in June 2008 and to celebrate this sporting event, the Isle of Man Government approved the release of two superb coins, each of which represents one of the host nations.

The designs on the coins portray images of footballers and a map surrounded by a hexagon.  The hexagon on the coins represents the white hexagons and black pentagons on a traditional football.  The coin representing Austria depicts a goalkeeper saving a goal with the map and Coat of Arms of Austria above.  The coin representing Switzerland shows two footballers tackling a football with the Map of Coat of Arms of Switzerland above.  On the map on both coins, the cities which will be hosting the matches are highlighted by stars.

Approved by Buckingham Palace, the obverse of the coins bears a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Lord of Man by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.  All coins are produced to the highest quality and the precious metal versions have been struck four times to achieve a glorious mirror finish background with the design sculpted in striking relief.
