Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: a dove, symbol of peace, is held by a feminine figure, an allegory of Europe, with the number “70” standing for the anniversary of peace, and the stars of the European Union in her hair; an olive branch bordering the logo of the Europe Star Programme completes the representation; arch-shaped inscription “REPUBBLICA ITALIANA” followed by the name of the designer “COLANERI”. Reverse: peace, half reclining in three-quarter view, with an olive branch in her left hand: detail from the fresco painted by Ambrogio Lorenzetti on the subject of the Good Government for the Sala dei Nove of the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena; on the right, a stylized dove and the stars of the European Union; above, the value “10 EURO”; on the left, the letter “R” and the dates “1945 2015”.
A brief annotation 1945 marks the end of World War II, a global event causing a deep and still open wound in the heart of Europe, which was left devastated by racial laws, extermination camps and genocide. For the past seventy years the European Union has represented a secure stronghold of democracy and human rights, thus being awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize 2012.
