Cyprus Euro Coins 2012 "€5 EU Presidency" Collectors Coin

Cyprus from July till December will hold the rotating EU Presidency for the first time. To commemorate this Cyprus will issue a collectors coin.

 

It's a composition depicting a daisy enclosed in wavy circles. The daisy is a motif from a “lefkaritiko” lace, the embroidery of Lefkara village. The lefkaritiko embroidery is included in UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. It is a characteristic example of the folklore tradition of Cyprus and reflects Cyprus’ hospitality. The wavy circles around the motif symbolise the Mediterranean Sea surrounding Cyprus. The coin’s nominal value of €5 and the wording “CYPRUS EU PRESIDENCY” are also depicted.
 
The designer is Ms. Ioanna Kalli.
 
Mintage will be 8.000 pieces, issued by the Bank of Greece/Mint.
