Subject of commemoration: The 50th anniversary of May 1968 events in Belgium


Description of the design: The design represents students with a pamphlet and flag in their hands and refers to student demonstrations that took place in Belgium in connection with the sociocultural changes of May 1968. It was an important national event that shaped Belgium’s national politics and influenced subsequent Government reforms, now 50 years ago.

The mintmark of Utrecht (the Mercury’s wand) is located on the left together with the Belgian mint master mark (the coat of arms of the municipality Herzele). The year mark 2018 and the country code BE are located at the left as well, just like the initials LL of the designer of the coin, Mr Luc Luycx.

An auditorium marks the back, which is a reference to students.

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

Number of coins to be issued: 260 000 coins
