The coin depicts a portrait of the Abbé Pierre, with its béret, and the logo of its foundation, with a microtext mentioning ‘Et les autres?’ which was its favorite motto to recall that one should never forget to help the others.

The letters ‘RF’ do appear for ‘République française’ together with the horn of plenty, mintmark of Monnaie de Paris on the left side, and the ‘fleurette’, hallmark of the engraving workshop on the right side.

The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
