50th Anniversary of launched satellite ESRO - 2B
The design shows the ESRO 2B satellite, the first successful satellite of the European Space
Research Organization and launched in May 1968, circling around planet Earth. The ESRO 2B, also renamed as ‘IRIS’
(International Radiation Investigation Satellite) once in orbit, was concentrated on solar X-rays, cosmic radiation and
Earth’s radiation belts.
The mintmark of Utrecht (the Mercury’s wand) is located on the bottom together with the Belgian mint master mark,
the coat of arms of the municipality Herzele, the country code BE and the initials LL referring to the designer of the
coin, Mr Luc Luycx.
The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
A map, next to the facial value, shows the European continent without borders.
