Description: Nubia ( Egypt and Sudan ) ( 1980 ). UNESCO launched an international campaign in 1960, inviting the community of nations to extend financial assistance and technical expertise for the safeguarding of these temples. To celebrate 20 years of international solidarity and the successful conclusion of the enterprise in 1980, this medal was struck in Germany by the Staatliche Münze, Karlsruhe. The medal was designed by Annick Maignen. The Nubian monuments from Abu Simbel and Philae were inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1979.
