20 Euro Coin 2002


Also in gold, this smaller coin displays the same impression of the Pilgrim Pope on observe. On the back is a detailed scene of four people loading up Noah’s Ark. The artist did a beautiful job of fitting in many details, including a menagerie including a chicken, monkey, owl, horse, and eagle. Everyone looks rushed, and one of the men is adding boards to finish one side of the ark. This message is not as hopeful as the one on the 50 Euro coin!
