circular gold disc that is painted with the Basque insignia in full color and blue background;front is Exactly like 1996.004.009 but the medal is smaller;in the center is the tree of Gernika with the government building right behind it painted white with gold pillars; surrounding the top 2/3 of the medal is the seven regions insignias circling the tree; the insignias seem to be of an old version with some region's flags having changed; all are miniaturizing very well and still have full color; below the tree is the word "Euskalerria" in raised gold colored metal; on the back is a magnetized black strip that is covered by green tape to preserve it; on the top of it is a raised line with raised letters that say "JME" over that; below the strip is the raised word "EIBAR"; found in CS1 in a box by Jeff Washburn on 7/2/2009
