FIFA World Cup Brasil 2014 is the 20th edition of this competition, which is contested by the senior men's national teams of the 208 members of FIFA. The championship has been awarded every four years since the inaugural tournament in 1930, except in the period from 1942 to 1946, because of the Second World War.
This time round, the championship is to be hosted by Brasil, from June 12th to July 13th 2014.
To mark the occasion of this sports event, Real Casa de la Moneda is issuing a new collector coin.
