The centre of the coin depicts the ship of Kyrenia (4th century B.C.) representing the island's relationship with the sea and its importance in trade and maritime activities.


Flanking the year mark, the name of the island in Greek and Turkish is engraved in a semicircle on the right hand side above the ship: ‘?????? 2008 KIBRIS’.


The image and the inscription are surrounded by the twelve stars of the European flag.
