The coin designed by Joaquin Jimenez honors the famous French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), one of the major icons of realism. The Thinker, The Kiss, The Gate of Hell and The Citizens of Calais are among the timeless masterpieces of sculpture. The mint motif is clearly portrayed by Auguste Rodin with his most famous work The Thinker, created in 1880-1882. The abbreviation "RF" for "République Française" can also be seen. On the beard of the artist is depicted his name "A. Rodin" and the anniversary data "1917-2017".
