The project alludes to the desert landscape of the Arabian Peninsula – the cradle of the Arabian horse.
Arabians, as they are often referred to, are very intelligent, good-natured and willing to please. No wonder that these delightful animals are the subject of many legends. One of them states that Muhammad, after a strenuous desert journey, tested his mares’ loyalty by turning them back from a waterhole. Only five of the desperately thirsty animals responded. These faithful mares became the legendary founders of the pure-blood Arabian breed.

In the central part of the coin – colorful image of a pure-blood chestnut Arabian horse. Right-hand – relief image of the representative of the breed. In the background – decorative surface: desert sand. Above it – outline of a horse rider dressed in Bedouin traditional clothes. Along the rim – name of the coin in Polish and English: KOŃ ARABSKI/ARABIAN HORSE.
