These limited-issue collectible commemorative coins are created in celebration of the 2550th anniversary of the Achaemenid Empire founded by Cyrus the Great. This bronze coin is designed in color with 3D casted images and texts with a polished gold finish. The coin dimensions are 44mm by 2.9mm. This is roughly 3.5 times the size of a quarter and twice the thickness.
The overall design of the coin is done by Mehrdad Badie. The coin incorporates inscriptions in the Old Persian language, images of Achaemenid Soldiers, the famous Cyrus Cylinder and the Lotus flower from stone-reliefs in Takht Jamshid.
The image of Cyrus the Great is the four-winged guardian figure representing Cyrus the Great, a bas-relief found at Pasargadae on top of which was once inscribed in three languages the sentence "I am Cyrus the king, an Achaemenian.
The coin also captures translated excerpts of inscriptions from the Cyrus Cylinder (Manshoor) in English. Like Persian miniature art, this exquisite coin is created with attention to detail.
