This coin issue is Portugal's contribution to the 2017 eurostar program, and features elements from the age of iron & glass.

The reverse is inspired by the entrance to the old Crystal Palace in Porto, a building made of granite, iron and glass, which opened in 1865 and was demolished in 1951. For the second time, the eurostar series of coins features a common obverse for all participating countries in 2017.

A particular feature of this coin is that it is the first in Portugal to use two different materials - metal and acrylic - for the silver and gold versions with a proof finish, a numismatic first that aims to recreate the wide use of iron and glass in 19th century architecture.
