The tributes by 20 years Ayrton Senna's death continues in Europe. This week a special currency 5 euros with an image of the Brazilian pilot was launched by the Autonomous Agency for Philately and Numismatics of the San Marino government.

They will be produced only 8 thousand units of currency that has limited series. Each coin costs 49,90 euros, or equivalent to R $ 150. Interested parties can send an email to the agency: [email protected].

The coin shows the inscription 'AYRTON SENNA 1994/2014', referring to the tragic accident of the GP of San Marino 1994, that took the life of the triple world champion. The art was created by Marcio Petta designers and Antonella Napolione. The coin weighs 18 grams, has 32 mm in diameter and displays a picture of Senna with the Williams FW16, on one side, and the coat of arms of San Marino on the other.
