The International Numismatic Agency has proposed several new designs for  the new Cyprus euro coinage. The pattern 2 and 1 euro coins feature a shield within a wreath, enclosed within a pentagon. The shield contains a detailed rendition of the abduction of Europe. The 12 stars of the EU and the inscription KIBRIS - CYPRUS - KYΠPOΣ surround the design.

Old Cyprus coin designs from the 1960s to 1980s feature a stylised ancient ship. As the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea Cyprus has been an international marketplace and important destination for the ships of the Egyptians, Macedonians, Romans and Byzantines. An ornate galley features on the new Cyprus pattern 50 cent, 20 cent, and 10 cent coins.

The pattern 5 cent, 2 cent and 1 cent coins feature a moufflon - a Cypriot species of wild sheep. A rare animal, it is also quite timid. On the brink of extinction the moufflon was successfully bred in captivity and the campaign to save the moufflon was boosted by the national airline Cyprus Airways, which adopted it as its emblem.

The reverse of the 2 and 1 euro patterns is a Roman galley. This ancient trading ship was a frequent visitor to Cyprus. Reverse designs including  a ship of commerce, dove of peace and scales of justice have been proposed to the EU Euromission and have been placed in the EU euro museum in Brussels. The 5 euro features Aphrodite, the facade of a Cypriot temple and the stars of Europe.
