The inner circle of the coin depicts a cross-shaped idol dating back to the chalcolithic period (3000 B.C.), from the village of Pomos which is a characteristic example of Cypriot prehistoric art.


The name of the island in Greek and Turkish ‘?????? KIBRIS’ is engraved in an interrupted semicircle on each upper side of the idol.


The year mark 2008 appears on the bottom right hand side. The twelve stars of the European flag are positioned on the outer ring of the coin.
