The 1 cent euro coin (€0.01) is the smallest and lowest domination of the euro coins.


The present common design displays "Europe's place in the world", bordered by North Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The fifteen European Union member states are highlighted but this was not considered prominent enough to warrant a change in design when the non-copper coins were redesigned in 2007 to reflect the post-2004 enlargements. This side also shows a large figure 1 and the words "euro cent", twelve stars are also displayed in two groups along the edge. The reverse features a region's national landmark or object with mintage, date, and stars circulating the border of the coin.


Although there are no plans to get rid of the one cent coin, the Commission and some member states have proposed that its national side be standardised across the eurozone to reduce the cost of its production. Some countries, however, plan to join the Eurozone, rearanging plans
