40th Anniversary of Carnation Revolution (Proof)

2014 will see the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the event known as the “Carnation Revolution”, which put an end to a long period of dictatorship and ushered in modern day Portuguese democracy.
The INCM is marking this moment in history with a commemorative 2 Euro circulation coin created by the sculptor José Teixeira, who has designed a stylised carnation for the national side, on which the words “25 de ABRIL” have been inscribed, establishing a bridge between the two regimes. The letter “R” in the central foreground was used as the first sign of the Revolution.
