XIII Special Olympics World Games — Athens 2011

Official Journal of the European Union

The centre of the coin shows the emblem of the Games, a radiant sun, the source of life that underlines the excellence and power of the athlete that takes part in the Games. Excellence is depicted in the olive branch and power in the spiral form in the centre of the sun. Around the image is written the sign ‘XIII Special Olympics W.S.G. Athens 2011’ as well as the issuing country ‘Ελληνικη Δημοκρατια’. The mintmark is also depicted in between. The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
