This issue marks the 550th anniversary of the birth of the Italian sculptor, Donatello.

Born Donato di Niccolo di Betto Bardi, Donatello (1386-1466) ranks as the father of Florentine Renaissance and is second only to Michelangelo in terms of skill and sheer greatness. Donatello became one of the most sought-after artists in Italy for his life-like, highly emotional sculptures. During his lifetime, Donatello completed some of the most well-known sculptures in Western art including David, Mary Magdalene and the compelling Gattamaleta. Today, his works can be found in prestigious art museums and galleries throughout Europe.

The reverse features an image of David, the bronze statue made by Donatello in 1440 and which can be admired in the Museum Bargello in Florence. This young boy is the famous biblical hero who won the battle against the giant Goliath and is represented completely naked, with the hat and a sword in his right hand. The obverse carries the standard 2 euro design.
