January 2014 | Greece issues silver commemorative coin for the EU Presidency 2014
A 10 Euro silver proof coin will be issued to commemorate Greece’s EU Presidency in 2014, featuring the Greek Presidency logo.
Each country holding the rotating Presidency of the Council of the European Union selects its own presidency logo, which serves as an integral visual symbol for the Presidency. The 2014 Greek Presidency logo depicts a sailboat in full sail, formed by the initials of the European Union. It aspires to unite common European values and Greece’s unique identity.
The symbolic background of the logo is the sea: a fundamental element of Greek identity, but also a pivotal component of Europe’s past and future.
