A globe in the center is tilted to the right bearing the inscription 'WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME' and an ear of wheat, an ear of maize and an ear of rice, the three grains representing the world's basic sources of nourishment, emerging from behind. The monogram of the Italian Republic (and R superimposed over and I) appears to the right of the globe with a smaller combination of the letters U and P below, and the initials of the engraver, Uliana Pernazza. To the upper left of the globe are the mint mark and the date with the 12 five-pointed stars in the outer rim representing the European Union.
