This issue celebrates the 150th Anniversary of the Union of the Ionian Islands with Greece.

The Ionian Islands are a group of islands traditionally called the Heptanese (the Seven Islands). The obverse features the "Seven Point Star" as a symbol of the "Ionian Dimension" in honor of its outstanding representatives in the fields of art, music, poetry, painting and politics. Clockwise from top, the visuals symbolize the following islands: Corfu's emblem is the "apēdalos naus" (ship without steering gear), as 'Great Nautical Powers' were attributed to the island and its sailors were well known for their nautical abilities and skills since ancient times. Zakynthos is represented by the sacrificial tripod of Apollo — Ithaca: Odysseus is depicted with the anciant hat Pileus — Paxi's emblem is a triden: according to a mythological tale, it was created when Poseidon hit the island of Corfu with his trident, splitting it in two — Kythira, the island of celestial Aphrodite, is symbolized by her 'emergence from the sea' — Lefkada is represented by the 'Apollonian harp', symbol for its 'Great Musical Tradition' — Cephalonia's emblem is its mythical hero Cephalus, depicted with his hound and spear. The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
