The Art of Porcelain — Portugal and the East

André Carrilho

This commemorative coin is the second in the series "Portugal and the East" and celebrates the taste of the Portuguese for porcelain. Inspired by floral motifs typical of Chinese and Portuguese porcelain, as well as his personal experiences in Macau, the multifaceted artist André Carrilho challenged Casa da Moeda´s technical team to create a unique and innovative piece. With a face value of €5.00, all coin finishes will have a square hole in the centre, a reference to the well-known Chinese Feng-Shui coins.
