This coin commemorates the Lusophony Games that took place in Lisbon in 2009.

The Lusophony Games is a sporting event that has taken place since 2006 – the participants are Portuguese speaking countries – so Portugal and former Portuguese colonies that have Portuguese as an official language.

The motif of the coin is that of the second games – an gymnast swirling a long ribbon.

At the top of the coin is the Portuguese coat of arms within a semi-circle formed by the country’s name – PORTUGAL.

Around the lower edge of the inner circle is the inscription – “2.os JOGOS DA LUSOFONIA LISBOA”.

This appears between the mint mark “INCM” and the name of the artist “J.AURÉLIO”. The year of issue 2009 is seen in from ten o’clock.
