The Silver Set previously announced in March’s bulletin (No. 41) has received the finishing touches in the last few days. As already stated, the theme is "Welcome Euro", and has been interpreted by Uliana Pernazza in both an original and symbolic way. The rear of the 5 Euro shows the twelve roses which represent the twelve countries of the European Union with the value of 5 Euro in the centre. On the 10 Euro coin, a newborn baby is shown, curled up fast asleep on a rosebud, enveloped in a globe and surrounded by the writing "Welcome Euro", a greeting to the new coin hurrying to enter our lives.
The three towers rising above the three feathers of San Marino make up the right side of both coins.
