After opening the colorful, round box you will meet the “Googly Eyes”. The coin decorated with impressive flower motifs: each flower color has an exceptional significance. In Ancient Rome, color red symbolized a secret, blue is a color, which radiates energy, while its dark shades strengthen the notion of secret and symbolize virginity. Color orange means sensitivity, pride, ambitions and suspiciousness.
Flowers depicted on the head of the “Googly Eyes” coin are a symbol of childhood. Eyes filled with curiosity in the center of them remind us that when we grow up, we somewhat slow down the tempo of life, become more careful and do not take interest in the world as we used to.
Digital printing and high relief technology – these are the solutions, which aided in perfectly disclosing the idea of the coin and giving it uniqueness.
On the obverse side of the coin, there is a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the center of the flower.
