The coin "Sunflower for Ukraine", like the previously issued collector coin "For the Freedom of Ukraine", is dedicated to Ukraine's fight for freedom – the income derived from both coins will be donated to Ukraine. Krišs Salmanis, the author of the coin's graphic design, has enshrined the following idea in the commemorative coin: the sun or light we wish Ukraine to reach as soon as possible is like a glimmer of hope for the time being. The national side of the coin depicts one of the symbols of the Ukrainian people in the fight for peace – a sunflower. Ukraine is the world's largest producer of sunflowers and exporter of sunflower oil. However, sunflowers are important not only from the point of view of the national economy – since Russia started the cruel war in Ukraine, the sunflower has also become a global symbol of peace. For the first time, sunflowers were planted in Ukraine as a symbol of peace at the Pervomaisk missile base to mark the removal of nuclear weapons from the country. Currently, sunflowers are used by people all over the world to show unity with the Ukrainian people. The total mintage of the coin "Sunflower for Ukraine" in circulation quality or coins in rolls is 400 000 pieces, whereas that of the coin in Brilliant Uncirculated quality in gift packaging is 15 000 pieces. The price per coin in gift packaging is 15.00 euro – the income derived from each coin sold in gift packaging will be donated to Ukraine.

Description: The summer solstice fire festivals were inscribed on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2015. They are traditional and popular festivities widely celebrated in Andorra each year. The design reproduces a human figure, named ‘fallaire’, wearing a traditional cape and tracing a circle of fire with the ‘falla’. This is the main element of the festival and consists of tree barks that, once lit, they are energetically whirled around creating large circles of fire. The graphic composition of lines in the background of the design represents the summer solstice together with the name of the issuing country ‘ANDORRA’ and the year ‘2023’. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European flag.
