      On January, 1st 2023, Croatia will introduce the euro!
      After joining the EU in 2013, ERM II in 2020, Croatia will exchange its Kuna for euro in 2023.
      The 2 euro coin displays a geographical map of Croatia. The edge inscription uses lyrics from the pastoral play Dubravka from 1628. On the 1 euro coin, a marten standing on a branch is displayed, an animal after which the Kuna, the current Croatian currency was named.
      For the 10c, 20c and 50c coins, a design with Nikola Tesla, born in Smiljan, currently Croatia, was chosen. For 1c, 2c and 5c coins, a design with ligature bound letters Ⱈ (H) i Ⱃ (R) in glagolitic script was chosen.

      Apperently, the design for the 1 euro coin will be canceled and replaced by something else due to plagiarism…

      Mathieu, the design of Nikola Tesla has caused controversy, especially in Serbia.

        I was wondering the same thing since having been once in Serbia, I saw Tesla’s picture on the paper money 100 dinars. So in which country did he actually belong to before moving away? 🙂 From Wikipedia I read something about it and got a bit better picture.

          I’ve fixed the reply to a certain post 😉 It was just a setting. Thank you for letting me know!

      Seems like we’re not there yet 😉

      In my opinion, these are quite disappointing designs. Especially the €2 design is very dull. Why put your country outline on a coin? I didn’t get it when Estonia did it and I still don’t get it.

      The only design I like is the glagolitic script on 1, 2 and 5 cent coin. And let’s hope the new €1 design will be better than the previous one.

      In the meanwhile, the final designs are available.
      There are even pictures of minted coins already 😉

      I wonder why is there the dot after the year number. Is it because of grammar? In Estonian we also use it but in certain cases like ‘the 2nd year’ is ‘2. aasta’, or ‘2023. aasta’ means ‘year 2023’ which is never used as ‘2023rd year’ in English. ‘Year 2023’ can still be directly translated as ‘aasta 2023’ where the dot after number would be a mistake unless this is the end of the sentence.

      So having these things in my mind, I find it a bit strange what the dot means. Does ‘100.’ mean in Croatian language ‘year 100’? So that it means exactly year and nothing else? Or does it have more meanings when it is not written on the coin?

      Coins are generally OK. I was a bit disappointed when here in Estonia all the coins were designed to look the same just like in Ireland so at least here in this new country, the coins do have some variety.

        That is a very good question, on which I don’t have the answer (yet)!
        I’ve just checked with the guys that minted the coins. They should know 😉
        I’ll let you know as soon as I have more information on this one!
