|The theme of the 7th World Meeting of Families hold from 30 May to 3 June 2012 was: "The Family: Work and Celebration". In our day the organization of work is conceived of and implemented in terms of the market and its rules, marked by an increasingly frenetic rhythm. A holiday becomes more of an opportunity to escape from this daily routine, taking on a strongly individualistic nature, instead of being an occasion to spend time together with the family.
The inner part of the coin features a family, with the Cathedral of Milan, the host city of the Seventh World Meeting of Families, in the background. The event is held every three years to highlight the family as a common human heritage, reflecting the fact that the family is universal and that it contributes to the human element of life everywhere in the world. Inscribed around the family scene are the names of the event and of the Vatican City in Italian and the year “2012”. The mintmark “R” appears between the boy and his mother.
