Above him are the words ‘GIOCHI INVERNALI’ and to his left the location of the Winter Games is marked by the word ‘TORINO’ and an image of Turin’s landmark Mole Antonelliana building. The monogram of the Italian Republic ‘RI’ and the mintmark ‘R’ are also to the skier’s left. The year of issue, 2006, and the initials of the designer ‘MCC’ (Maria Carmela Colaneri) are shown to his right. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.
