Circulation coin

Cruciform idol from the Chalcolithic period

Official Journal of the European Union

The inner circle of the coin depicts a cross-shaped idol dating back to the chalcolithic period (3000 B.C.), from the village of Pomos which is a characteristic example of Cypriot prehistoric art. The name of the island in Greek and Turkish "ΚΥΠΡΟΣ KIBRIS" is engraved in an interrupted semicircle on each upper side of the idol. The year mark appears on the bottom right hand side. The twelve stars of the European flag are positioned on the outer ring of the coin.
