Description of obverse and reverse
The obverse of the coin shows the Brandenburg Gate, previously on the East side, crowned by the quadriga of the Greek goddess of Victory; it is one of the strongest symbols of Berlin and of Germany. In the centre, a soldier holding a rose, goes through the wall as an allegory of the fall of the wall. «Berlin» is written in a tag way on the wall. Below the coin, «30 Jahre Mauerfall» is written. It means 30 years of the Fallen Wall.

On the reverse, «30 ans de la Chute du Mur de Berlin 1989-2019  is written on a handwritten style. The face value and the RF inscription also appear.
