Unitá D'Italia!

Issuance year - 2011, March
150th anniversary of the unification of Italy
One more coin depicted in the image as a result of a recent exchange with Miguel, from Madrid, Spain. He sent this Italian and the 5 commemorative in background and also some currency Estonian and Spanish coins.
The inner part of the coin shows, in the centre, three Italian flags fluttering in the wind, to mark three past periods of 50 years each – the periods ending in 1911, 1961 and 2011 respectively - in illustration of a perfect link between generations: this is the logo of the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy. Written in a semi-circle along the upper outer edge around the three flags is the inscription “150° DELL’ UNITÁ D’ITALIA” (150th anniversary of the unification of Italy).
