Obverse

Three feathers wrapped by a ribbon with lettering of the country name.

The motto LIBERTAS (Lat. freedom). It possibly refers to the amazing maintenance of independence in the midst of many larger states. The motto could also have developed from the alleged last words of the founder Marinus: "Relinquo vos liberos ab utroque homine" (Lat. "I leave you free from both men").

Engravers: Ettore Lorenzo Frapiccini and Loredana Pancotto

Reverse

Two children taking some books from a chest picturing the equal opportunity of development.

In the background are the three towers. The components of the San Marino's coat of arms are: In the shield there are three mountains with three towers, each decorated with a weather vane consisting of a ostrich feather. The towers symbolize the three citadels of San Marino (La Guaita, La Cesta and La Montale), while the hills represent the three summits of Monte Titano.
