UNICEF - Commemorative 2€

2021 marks the 75th anniversary of UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund) creation, which defends the children's rights and responds to their basic needs around the world. On this occasion, Monnaie de Paris decided to honour and support UNICEF’s commitment by creating a 2€ commemorative collection. For any coin of collection 2€ Proof Set or 2€ BU purchased, Monnaie de Paris will donate 2€ to UNICEF.

The universal defense of children is a cause that we had to illustrate with an allegory while keeping a childish part. I tried to keep a child’s soul while expressing the noble values of UNICEF.

Engraver word

Emblematic coin

The coin obverse represents planet earth as a jigsaw puzzle surrounded by two children hands that remind us of UNICEF’s commitment to all children all around the world. A branch of Laurel, a reminder of UNICEF's logo and symbol of peace, is also present on the left side. Finally, the 75th anniversary dates of UNICEF's creation are at the top followed by the motto “For every child”.
