Commemorative issue

2500th Anniversary of the Battle of Marathon

Obverse

The coin commemorates the 2.500th 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 symbolises the birth of Western civilisation in its present form. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.
