Commemorative issue

150 Years of Public Security

Obverse

The design shows human figures and buildings, symbolic representations of citizens and cities, where public security is mainly assured, and the simplified police symbol. The legends include the year ‘1867’ and the year of issue ‘2017’, the country of issue ‘PORTUGAL’, the subject of commemoration (‘SEGURANÇA PÚBLICA’ – Public Security), the three main issues related to citizenship (‘DIREITOS’, ‘LIBERDADES’ e ‘GARANTIAS’ – Rights, Freedoms, and Warranties), and the author’s name JOSÉ DE GUIMARÃES. The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
