This coin honors the 150th anniversary of the renowned charitable organization, the Red Cross Military Corps.

The Italian Red Cross, among the original founding members of the International Red Cross in 1919, was founded in Milan and is presently headquartered in Rome. It has served many causes beyond the Italian borders, including a stint in Korea to help remedy the humanitarian tragedies in the country during the Korean War in the early 1950s. In addition to the Military Corps, other components of the Italian Red Cross include voluntary nurses serving as an auxiliary of the Armed Forces and civilian volunteers of the Italian Red Cross.

The obverse shows the emblem of the Italian Red Cross with a small, red-enameled cross in the center of the design. Below the Red Cross emblem is a banner bearing the organization’s motto, INTER ARMA CARITAS, which translated into English means “In War, Charity.”

The reverse has a soldier of the Italian Red Cross Corps holding a young child during a humanitarian mission. Also found are the inscriptions CROCE ROSSA ITALIANA (Italian Red Cross) and CORPO MILITARE (Military Corps)
