The inner part of the coin represents the different cultures of the five regions within the European continent, symbolised by five human silhouettes and the sacred texts of the different communities.

Arched inscriptions complete the design: at the top, ‘SAN MARINO’, above the year ‘2008’; and at the bottom, ‘ANNO EUROPEO DEL DIALOGO INTERCULTURALE’ and the initials ‘E.L.F.’ of the artist, Ettore Lorenzo Frapiccini; to the left, the mint mark ‘R’.

The coin's outer ring contains the 12 stars of the European flag.
