On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the creation of UNICEF, MdP has decided to create a €2 Commemorative coin to support it. For every 2€ BE or BU collector coin purchased, MdP will donate 2€ to UNICEF. The obverse of the coin presents the earth in the form of a puzzle, a metaphor that represents the link that binds us together. Two children's hands surround the globe and remind us of UNICEF's commitment to children around the world. An olive branch, a symbol of peace, is present on the left side, a nod to the UNICEF logo.
