Description

Two indented and inverted triangles have been placed on the top and bottom of both sides of the coin indicating the denomination for the sight impaired.

Obverse

A pigeon with an olive branch surrounded by the inscription "Dove of Peace", date at right within a circle.

Doves are often associated with the concept of peace and pacifism. They often appear in political cartoons, on banners and signs at events promoting peace (such as the Olympic Games, at various anti-war/anti-violence protests, etc.), and in pacifist literature. A person who is a pacifist is sometimes referred to as a dove (similarly, in American politics, a person who advocates the use of military resources as opposed to diplomacy can be referred to as a hawk).
