The design radially displays the word «PAZ» (PEACE) in the 16 official idioms spoken in all 20 countries of the Euro Zone as of January 2023. The inscription at the top reads «PORTUGAL», followed by the year of issuance «2023» at the top right; at the top left is the name of the designer “José S. Teixeira” and at the left the mintmark «CASA DA MOEDA», the name of the Portuguese Mint.
