This issue commemorates the 120th anniversary of the birth of conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos.

Dimitri Mitropoulos (1896–1960), was a Greek conductor, pianist, and composer. He received international fame both as a major conductor and composer of the 20th century. Mitropoulos made his U.S. debut in 1936 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and later settled in the country and become a citizen in 1946. From 1937 to 1949 he served as principal conductor of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra (forerunner of today's Minnesota Orchestra). In 1949, Mitropoulos began his association with the New York Philharmonic, and became its sole music director in 1951. Mitropoulos recorded extensively with the Philharmonic and expanded its repertoire, commissioning works by new composers and championing the symphonies of Gustav Mahler. In 1958, he was succeeded as the Philharmonic's conductor by a protégé, Leonard Bernstein.

The reverse depicts a portrait of Dimitris Mitropoulos superimposed on a background of musical notes and the inscription "120 YEARS OF THE BIRTH OF DIMITRI MITROPOULOS" in Greek.
