The 50th anniversary of the ‘Grand Duchess Charlotte Bridge’
The design shows the ‘Grand Duchess Charlotte Bridge’, which is the main infrastructure connecting the city centre of Luxembourg to the urban quarter of Kirchberg, the location of the city’s European Union institutions. The French name of the bridge, ‘Pont Grande-Duchesse Charlotte’, is inscribed on the image of the bridge, and the year ‘1966’ appears directly beneath this text. At the top of the design, an image of the Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg; at its left, the year of issuance ‘2016’. At the bottom appears the name of the issuing country, ‘LUXEMBOURG’. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union.
