Description

Rio de Janeiro is the second-largest city in Brazil, the sixth-largest city in the Americas, and the world’s thirty-ninth largest city by population. Part of the city has been designated as a World Heritage Site, named “Rio de Janeiro: Carioca Landscapes between the Mountain and the Sea”, by UNESCO on 1 July 2012 as a Cultural Landscape.

The design is based on the Olympic team logo of Belgium symbolizing an athlete who wears the flag of the country, celebrating victory and expressing pride in representing her country. The inner part of the coin depicts, from top to bottom, a stylized character, the five Olympic rings and the inscription “BELGIUM TEAM.” To the left is the year 2016. On the right, the indication of nationality ‘BE’ appears between monetary brand of Brussels (helmeted head of the Archangel Michael) and the brand of “currency commissioner”.
