Production quality What makes the WDC coin special is its centre section. It is goldcoloured and undulating, with clear differences in elevation; yet the highest ridge in the pattern is on the same level as the rest of the coin. The grooves and ridges are mirrored on the opposite face of the elegant coin.
Description of obverse and reverse The coin depicts the defining moment for a designer, the inspiration – the moment when plan for the design becomes clear.
A brief annotation The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design named Helsinki the 2012 World Design Capital. The coin marks this momentous year. The WDC coin, combining gold and silver, is a masterpiece of minting. The design coin is an indication of the high quality minting know-how. In the execution of the coin one can sense the seamless co-operation between designer and tool-manufacturer. The Mint Director’s Conference 2012 awarded the WDC coin the title as the Most Technologically Advanced Coin. The coin separated itself from the competition through its finely executed design.

Полное идейное совпадение аверс и реверса + воплощение хорошее. Был бы рад такой монете.
