TERRA 2021

 

Earth - "Terra" in Latin, is our only home. It provides every resource needed for life, but our actions have left a mark on it. 

 

The level of CO2 is now at its highest in 4 million years, global temperatures are reaching new highs, glaciers are melting and sea levels are rising.

This coin addresses the importance of protecting the environment and highlights the need of cooperation in tackling climate problems, no matter which side of the planet we live on.
