José Afonso

Francisco Providência

José Manuel Cerqueira Afonso dos Santos — better known as José Afonso, or Zeca Afonso — was born on August 2nd 1929, in Aveiro, and went on to become one of the most influential figures of the Portuguese 20th century. Poet, singer and composer of countless well known tunes, he gave words, voice and melody to "Grândola, Vila Morena", a song used by the Armed Forces Movement as the signal to start the 25th of April Revolution, in 1974.

This collector's coin, which inaugurates the series dedicated to Portuguese Musicians, was created by the prestigious designer and professor at the Department of Communication and Art of the Aveiro University, Francisco Providência.
