Aquileia is a town in the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. The city is located on the Natissa River in modern-day Friuli (northern Italy ), about ten kilometers from the Grado Lagoon on the Gulf of Trieste. It was a strategically and economically important city of the Roman Empire. Remains of the Roman city can be visited in the outdoor area and in two museums, but most of them have not yet been spotted archaeologically (as of 2017). The medieval basilica of Aquileia contains the most important early Christian floor mosaic in Italy, dated to the early 4th century.
The collector coin is part of the Europa Coin Programme, also known as the European Silver Programme, or the Eurostar Programme. It is an initiative dedicated to the issuance of collector-oriented legal tender coins in precious metals to celebrate European identity. The issuing authorities of EU member countries voluntarily contribute coins to the Europa Coin Programme. Multiple countries have participated in the programme, beginning in 2004. Some coins are denominated in euro, others are denominated in other currencies.
