Commemorative issue

2500th Anniversary of the Battle of Marathon

Obverse

The coin commemorates the 2500th anniversary of the Battle of Marathon. The centre of the coin shows a synthesis of a shield and a runner/warrior representing the struggle for freedom and the noble ideals that the Battle of Marathon stands for. The bird on the shield symbolizes the birth of Western civilization in its present form. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.
