On 4 May 2019 Audrey Hepburn, ‘la Grande Dame’ of the silver screen, would have turned 90 years old. To commemorate her 90th birthday, the Royal Mint of Belgium is issuing a fine Gold €25 commemorative coin.




This coin is handed over during the official opening of the exhibition “Intimate Audrey” on 30 April in Brussels by Mintmaster Ingrid Van Herzele to Sean Hepburn Ferrer, the son of the much-loved actress and organizer of the exhibition.

She was a legendary actress and a UNICEF ambassador.

She passed away in 1993, due to a colon cancer.
