The most successful artistic design of the Croatian national side of the €1 coin has been selected, the Croatian National Bank (HNB) said in a press release.
At a session today, the Council of the Croatian National Bank, at the proposal of the Money Commission, made a decision on the final selection of the most successful design of the Croatian national side of the €1 coin which will go into circulation in Croatia next year.
The €1 coin has a motif of a kuna (marten) with a chessboard in the background on the Croatian national side. images below.
Jagor Šunde, David Čemeljić and Fran Zekan are the authors of the design. Šunde is the author of the conceptual design, and Čemeljić and Zekan are co-authors of the executive solution, HNB said.
The designs of the Croatian national sides of the €2 euro and 50, 20 and 10 cent coins were confirmed back in February.
The €2 coin features a map of Croatia, and the words about freedom from Ivan Gundulić’s famous work Dubravka.
The 50, 20 and 10 cent coins have Nikola Tesla on the Croatian national side, whilst the two and one cent coins have an image of the Glagolitic script.
