As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, approximately 420 million Croatian euro coins with national motifs weighing as much as 3.7 tonnes are currently being produced, and they will be offered to all people and business entities from December the 1st, 2022.
The one euro coin features the image of a wood marten, which is an animal similar to a ferret or mink and which is the name of the current Croatian currency (the kuna), the two-euro coin is decorated with a geographical map of the Republic of Croatia, the 50, 20, and 10 euro cent coins feature the image of Nikola Tesla, while the 5, 2, and 1 euro cent coins feature the letters H (for Hrvatska/Croatia) and R (for Republika/Republic) written in Glagolitic script, the oldest known Slavic alphabet, according to a report from Danica.
The Croatian National Bank (CNB) explained that all of the necessary quantities of Croatian euro coins with the aforementioned features will be minted by December the 1st this year. They will be sorted into 1.2 million packages for people to purchase and 200,000 packages for business entities to purchase.
Therefore, from the very frist day of December this year, people will be able to purchase a maximum of two packages containing 33 different Croatian euro coins worth 13.28 euros at the Croatian National Bank, as well as from branches of Fina and Croatian Post (Hrvatska posta). Each package will cost 100 kuna.
