Description: The coin depicts the statue of Hibernia rising above the general post office building whose occupation in 1916 marked the start of the Easter Rising. Hibernia is the symbol of Ireland.

Hibernia is considered a witness to the events of 1916 and, a hundred years, he has witnessed the flowering of the nation based on the ideals of the Proclamation.
