Greece - Commemorative Medal Forerunner "1821-2021 anniversary of Revolution" - Medal

FORERUNNER In Greece, it is the first time that such a technique is used to create a commemorative medal. The coin is composed of 3 parts, which are connected with a blue polymeric ring. On one side, we see the painting by Theophilos. The engraving dexterity of the National Mint artists is self-evident: it managed to transfer in such a small area the amazing details of the original, even the facial expressions and the posture of the figures. On the other side, is depicted the logo of the Committee "Greece 2021," the title of the celebration "200 Years after the Revolution" and the logo of the Mint (IETA.) Finally, along the medal's perimeter, the two dates, 1821 – 2021, are engraved, joined by two branches of laurel. FORERUNNER is placed in a specially designed luxury case "blister" in a diptych, which is printed with part of Theophilos' painting, and a text, in Greek and English, with details that describe the symbolism of the representations.
