Reverse

A special bird's perspective, with the help of which an observer enters the tropical zone along the tree giants. The parrot is symbolic of the biodiversity of the tropics. With these realistic visual elements the tropical zone with the damp rainforest is abstracted in an excellent way. The red ring defines the transition to an airy free surface, which makes the coin 'glossy'.

Lettering:
TROPISCHE ZONE

Translation: Tropische Zone
