Commemorative coin: 70 Years of the Union of the Dodecanese with Greece
Front side: A rose, the emblem of Rhodes, inspired by a coin minted from the ancient city of Rhodes, one of the most characteristic coins of the Dodecanese, with stylized waves growing from the centre. On the inner edge is the caption “1948-2018 THE UNION OF THE DODECANESE WITH GREECE” and the name of the country. Also visible on the left is a palmette (the mint mark of the Greek mint) and, on the right, the monogram of the artist (George Stamatopoulos). The outer ring of the coin bears the 12 stars of the European flag.
