Norway 10 krone 2013 - Women's Suffrage Jubilee

New circulating commemorative:

"Women's Suffrage Jubilee"

Norges Bank invited seven candidates to compete for the design of the coin's reverse. The winning design with the motto "Joining forces" is by illustrator and graphic designer Siri Dokken. The left side of the coin features four female figures with their arms outstretched as its central motif. Commenting on her motif, Dokken says that democracy is a bottom-up movement and that to vote is to join forces to move something together, to create change, move axes and centres of gravity. Minor adjustments may be made to the motif before the coin is put into production.
