In 1948, Belgium finally introduced universal women's suffrage. This made Belgium the last European country, after Greece and Switzerland, in which women were given a vote. The ladies could not effectively use this vote until the parliamentary elections in June 1949. Earlier, the focus of feminist movements was on general civil rights and equal opportunities in education; in other words the economic emancipation of women. On the political front, one of the main concerns was that women, more than men, would be influenced by their pastor when voting. On the coin itself, you will see the text 'ALGEMEEN VROUWENKIESRECHT SUFFRAGE UNIVERSEL FÉMININ' all around. Inside it, the Venus symbol as a voting box with a red pencil. Next to it: 75 JAAR ANS. Next to it, the country indication BE and the year 2023, below it the mintmaster's mark (an erlenmeyer flask with aster) and the privy mark of the Royal Dutch Mint (the Mercury staff). Bottom right 'IB' the initials of designer Iris Bruijns. The BU version in coincard shows the glee with which the acquired right to vote was announced in the newspapers 75 years ago and also shows women exercising their right to vote.

Feature: The history of the Portuguese dictatorship is a history of permanent resistance to the Dictatorship. And that is why, when the Armed Forces Movement declared a military coup on the 25th of April 1974, the country shouted as one: "Freedom! Freedom!"

The Law of 8 July 1974 n. 59 "Declaration of citizens' rights and of the fundamental principles of the San Marino legal system" certainly represented a very significant moment in the political and institutional life of the Republic. For the first time, after the Arengo of 1906, the principles of the separation of powers, defined the tasks of the Regency, of the Great and General Council, of the Congress of State and of the judiciary, were enshrined in a supranational law, confirming their respective autonomy and independence. Law No. 59 of 8 July 1974 affirmed the fundamental and inviolable rights of citizens, while identifying the basic canons placed in support of a free and democratic community, which has its roots in centuries of history of independence and now projected towards a future of progress and peace, which sees it as part
albeit small but significant
of the international community. The hierarchy of sources of law is laid down in detail; the principles set out in the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms are recognised at constitutional level; the College guarantor of the constitutionality of the norms is established.
