The obverse contains ""O Pensador" - the Statue "The Thinker" made by Leopoldo de Almeida
The statue is currently located in Museu do Jose Malhoa in Caldas Da Rainha, Portugal. Considering that Caldas is the nearest city to my moms and I've been at the park the museum is in, I should have known that, but its scheduled for next time we go to Portugal.
Caldas is famous for 3 things, a statue (usually of football (soccer) players, monks and priests) that you a pull a string and a male part that you can't post on a family friendly pops out (sadly no picture), cavacas which are sugar covered crunchy dough balls that will give you diabetes after having 2 (I'm actually not a fan), the below is the place to get them.
The actual museum the statue is housed in.
The 3rd thing are the hot springs (Caldas Da Rainha translated means The Queen's Hot Springs), below is a spa you can bathe in hot mineral water.
This is the farmers market.
And a random fountain
