*The Central Bank of Cyprus ran a competition to design a commemorative €5 coin to celebrate the Republic of Cyprus’ 50th anniversary.
The winning design for both faces of the coin won €2,500. The competition was open only to private individuals.
Although we tried several times to obtain the name of the winner from the Central Bank of Cyprus’ Numismatic Service we are still waiting for them to get back to us.
You can find the Central Bank of Cyprus at 80, Kennedy Avenue, CY-1076 Nicosia.
