Commemorative Italian Winter Olimpic Games

Issuance year - 2006
The coin depicted in the image, results of an exchange with Francesco Prosperi from Italy. This very cool and magnificent commemorative Winter Olimpic Games and other 5 currency Italian coins were traded by the 2007 Portuguese Portugal Presidency of the European Union and 5 other currency coins.
This coin shows a skier racing, against a background of stylized graphic elements and an image of Turin's landmark Mole Antonelliana building with the inscription "Torino" below and also the words "Giochi Invernali" at the top right. Thanks, Francesco.

Issuing volume: 40.000.000
