2014 is a year of celebration for the Belgian Red Cross 150th anniversary. The Belgian Red Cross was established in 1864 by Doctor Andrea Wegner and has its headquarters in Brussels. It is fighting every moment to relieve human suffering and prevent humanitarian crises.
Since creation in 1863, the International Committee of Red Cross's sole objective has been to ensure protection and assistance for victims of armed conflict and strife. It does so through its direct action around the world, as well as by encouraging the development of international humanitarian law and promoting respect for it by governments and all weapon bearers. Its story is about the development of humanitarian action, the Geneva Conventions and the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

The cross is surrounded by the mintmark, privy mark of the mint's director, the year and the country code ‘BE’. The twelve stars of the European Union surround the design on the outer ring.
