Description of obverse and reverse
The front bears the symbol of the global event International Eucharistic Congress, the Mission Cross, adapted to coin. This cross is not only a unique piece of Hungarian craftmanship recalling the motives of Hungarian history, but also a reliquary. The central motif of the reverse is a depiction of a monstrance (a vessel displaying the sacrament). The rays running from the monstrance symbolize the emanating light. The background features the host city Budapest by depicting the city’s most famous square, the Heroes’ Square. The bottom legend reads ‘ALL MY SPRINGS ARE IN YOU’ (Psalms 87:7) which was choosen as the motto of the event.
