Description

The commemorative coin dedicated to Ukraine and the European solidarity brought in support of this country.

Obverse

Depicts a sunflower. The flower's petals are in the shape of human figures holding hands. The sunflower also symbolizes the rising sun and a new beginning.

The composition of this side is dominated by the Lithuanian inscription meaning “Together with Ukraine”. The date of the issue on the left, the country name above and the mintmark (LKM) on the right.

The sunflower is one of the national symbols of Ukraine, as it is one of the largest producers and exporters of sunflower oil in the world. However, since the start of the war in Ukraine, the sunflower has become a global symbol of peace.

Reverse

A geographical map of Western Europe spans the outer ring and inner core on the right side of the coin. The inscription 2 EURO is superimposed over the map of Europe, with the numeral “2” located in an open field representing the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

12 stars are located on the right side of the outer ring, with six stars atop the map of Europe and six stars below it; six vertical stripes cut across the inner core of the coin, visually connecting the upper and lower star segments.

Luc Luycx, a designer at the Royal Belgian Mint, designed the Euro’s common reverse; his initials, LL, are seen on the right side of the design, just under the “O” in “EURO.”
