The third tower of San Marino (Montale) is encircled by the twelve stars of Europe. At the left of the tower the mintmark (R) and the year of issue, at the right the country name and the initials of the designer (stylised Ch). Engraver's initials below.

The Montale is located on the smallest of Monte Titano's summits. Unlike the other towers, this one is not open to the public. It was constructed in the 14th century. It is thought to have been constructed to give protection against the increasing power of the Malatesta family in that region. It was also used as a prison, and accordingly, the only entrance to the tower is a door about seven metres from ground level, which was common for prison architecture of the time.

Designer: Frantisek Chochola
