Voting for Appearance of Future Croatian Euro Coin Comes to a Close

Croatia’s planned Eurozone entry date is growing ever closer, which many have put to the back of their minds owing to more pressing circumstances surrounding the ongoing pandemic of late. The country’s entry into the Eurozone comes with concerns for many, with others asking where the referendum on the matter was, not realising that all countries with the exception of Great Britain agreed to eventually sign up to the common currency when joining the European Union in the first place.

For others, no longer having the Croatian currency which is very sensitive to exchange rate fluctuations resulting in numerous issues when working with the euro, will come as a breath of fresh air and a fuller pocket. Others fear that the introduction of the Eurozone’s currency will see prices rise, despite assurances that it won’t happen. 

To make this serious matter a bit lighter and bring it directly to the public, voting on what the Croatian euro coin will look like took place, in which the public got to choose from several very Croatian coin designs.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the symbols for the Croatian euro coin will be chosen from the kuna, the map of Croatia, the Glagolitic alphabet, Dubrovnik and the Croatian coat of arms.

Almost 50,000 people voted for their favourites via the Croatian National Bank’s official website. Some would like the Glagolitic alphabet because that was the very first Croatian script, some would like the map and the country’s famous checkers because that symbol is the closest to them, but some also had new ideas, their own suggestions, writes

Additional proposals will also be taken into account, Croatian National Bank Governor Boris Vujcic confirmed. “The motive that was most often proposed will definitely be considered to be placed on the Croatian euro coin,” Vujcic concluded.

By the end of the week, the Croatian National Bank’s commission will choose the final symbols and which will be on which Croatian euro coin. They will then immediately announce a tender for artists who need to design the look of the coins themselves with the selected motifs.
