The reverse highlight the Gothic style with several major emblems: Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral and its stained glass windows, symbol of the greatness and beauty of Gothic architecture, the tapestries of the Lady and the Unicorn and a representation of an illuminating monk in the form of a colored stained glass window. Coloring is a way of paying tribute to the importance of color in the Gothic style. 

The structure of the obverse is common to all the countries from the Europa Star programme, it presents a star, extracted from the logo. This year’s thematic and the name of the issuing country are inscribed in a circular arc. In the center of the obverse, we can find the national element. The Europa goddess is dressed with floating flags. Yeardate and mintmarks appear on the bottom of the coin.
