Official Coin set Brilliant Uncirculated with 9 coins: from 1 cent to 2 euro + 5 Euro Silver coin dedicated to the “World Oceans Day”.
ISSUE DATE: 20th JULY 2020
In 2008, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed World Oceans Day on June 8 in order to promote sustainable behavior and policies for the planet's marine resources.
The oceans cover about two thirds of the earth's surface and are the very foundations of life.
The 5-euro coin shows a dolphin diving into the water on the reverse: the composition reveals the devastating impact of man who with his waste pollutes the waters of the seas and poisons the creatures who live there.
On the obverse of the coin the waters are depicted which, with their waves, lap the Three Towers and recall the volutes of the Pens, symbolizing the essentiality of the water element for the ecosystem and humans.
