The climate was the theme chosen for the third edition of the contest "Drawing the Currency", a partnership with schools in the municipality of Guarda. Out of 582 proposals, the 1st prize was awarded to Tiago Ferreira, a 6th year student at Escola Carolina Beatriz Ângelo. This coin also resulted from the effort of students from all schools participating in the project, who were invited to collect plastic waste, to later be used to mint these 6000 coins.
The colored discs, symbolizing each of the three main colors of the recycling bins, are a polymer made from recycled material, adapted to be integrated into the metal at the time of minting.
