Much of the symbolism concerns agriculture and a steel plant worker, probably meant to stand for industry. The mining sector and steel industry have largely disappeared from the Benelux countries and agriculture is becoming more marginal every year, giving the designs a quaint and old-fashioned look - compare the miner's head on Belgium last small bronze coins. Today, the Luxembourg economy floats on the financial sector and tourists, attracted by large wooded areas that invite hiking (as long as the weather co-operates). That's hard to put on a coin.
