France 2013 - 2 Euro commemorative - Pierre de Coubertin
In 2013, the currency of Paris issues a second piece of 2 € commemorative. This piece celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Pierre de Coubertin.
Strongly influenced by Anglo-Saxon culture, Pierre de Coubertin is at the origin of the integration of sport into French schools. His real name Pierre de Fredy de Courbertin, he is best known for being the founder, in 1884, of modern Olympic Games. These global games are an opportunity, for participating countries, to challenge themselves sportingly with their athletes in a spirit of peace and glorification of sport.
The still young coubertin stone's face appears on the face. The stylized Olympic rings form the background of the room. They serve as frames for silhouettes symbolizing Olympic sports.
A map of the European continent is represented on a dynamic canvas made up of the twelve stars of the European Union.
