San Marino

Republic of San Marino (it. Repubblica di San Marino)
Capital: San Marino
Area: 61.2 km2
Population: 32.5 thousand people (2012)
Official language: Italian
Monetary unit before the introduction of the euro: sanmarine lira = 100 centesimo, Italian lira = 100 centesimo
of the euro: from January 1, 1999, from January 1, 2002 in cash Heads of state: 2 captains regent
Form of government: republic

Despite the fact that the Republic of San Marino is not part of the European Union, the euro is still the official currency on the territory of this state. In addition, San Marino is allowed to issue its own euro coins.
Why so? The fact is that on March 22, 1862, an agreement on friendship and trade was concluded between the Republic of San Marino and the Kingdom of Italy, regulating financial and economic relations between the two countries. Subsequently, it was confirmed and supplemented by other agreements.



On November 29, 2000, a currency agreement was concluded between the Republic of San Marino and the Italian Republic on behalf of the European Union, on the basis of which the microstate received the right to issue euro coins and use the euro as a state currency.
And only on March 27, 2012 in Brussels between San Marino and the European Union a direct currency agreement was concluded without third-party agreements with Italy.

The new treaty allowed San Marino to use the euro as its official currency and also established the legal status of the euro in that state.
In addition, the agreement provides for the establishment of a fixed annual issue of euro coins (including collectibles) in the amount of 2.6 million euros in the first year after the entry into force of the agreement. Thereafter, the issue volume may be reviewed annually by the Joint Committee.
In addition, the Republic undertakes to bring its own legislation in line with the requirements of the European Union (issuance of euro banknotes and coins, combating fraud and counterfeiting of money; prevention of money laundering and statistical reporting requirements).
After the agreement was ratified by both parties on September 1, 2012, it entered into force. The new document replaced the agreement signed in 2000 between Italy and San Marino.
In addition, San Marino also has the right to issue gold coins denominated, which, however, have the status of legal tender only on the territory of the Republic itself.

The national side of the euro was designed by artist and sculptor Frantisek Chochola Historically, the heads of state are two co-rulers - the captain-regent (it. Capitani Reggenti), elected by the Great General Council for 6 months, following the model of the consuls of the Roman Republic. Investiture (taking office) takes place on April 1 and October 1. The first investiture ceremony took place on December 12, 1243; according to tradition, it takes place in the ancient palace of Walloni. The Captains Regent act collegially and all their decisions must be made by mutual consent, with each having a veto over the other.

The history of the issuance of San Marino's own coins begins in 1864 with the issuance of copper 5 centesimos, the first silver coin appeared in 1898, and a gold coin of 20 lire in 1925, today it is a numismatic rarity. After World War II, the issuance of coins resumed again only in 1972. Two years later, in 1974, new gold coins denominated in scudo appeared. Throughout the history of these coins, their mass and fineness have changed several times. Initially, two denominations were issued: 1 (3 g of 917 fine gold) and 2 (6 g of 917 fine gold) skudo. Later, another%, 5 and 10 skudos were added to the nominal series.
In accordance with the Monetary Agreement between the Italian Republic on behalf of the European Union and the Republic of San Marino of November 29, 2000, the microstate received not only the right to issue its own euro coins, but also the possibility of continuing the issuance of gold coins denominated in skudo. Since 2002, in parallel with the euro, San Marino has been issuing one gold coin in denominations of 2 skudos (6.451 g of 900 gold). Frantisek Chochola from the Czech Republic commissioned by the Independent State Philatelic and Numismatic Company of San Marino. As before, the coins of San Marino are minted in Rome at the State Polygraphic Institute and the Mint of Italy.
On the obverse of San Marino euro coins, Frantisek Chochola displayed the most recognizable images and architectural monuments of this small country.

Thus, the Montale Tower adorns the national side of the 1-cent euro coin of San Marino. This is one of the three towers of defensive fortifications, which is a separate structure, without additional fortifications.
A small pentagonal gun tower was erected in the 14th century as an additional fortification to the first Guaita tower. A good view opens from the tower, which determined its functions: observation, guard and signal. With the help of a bell, they warned of danger in the event of an attack by enemy troops. In the lower, underground part of the tower was a prison. Today, access to Montale, unlike other towers, is limited for tourists.

The 2 euro cent coin depicts a statue towering over San Marino's Liberty Square in front of the Government Palace. It was designed by the sculptor Galetti and presented to the country in 1876 by the German Countess Otilia Geyrot Wagener. The San Marino Statue of Liberty is made in the form of a woman with a spear, dressed in the costume of an ancient warrior.

The obverse of the 5 euro cent coin adorns the fortress of Guaita, the first defensive tower in San Marino, built in the 10th century. on the edge of a cliff. This is one of the most ancient fortifications, used to protect the country and as a refuge for the population. After numerous reconstructions, the tower acquired its modern look only in the 15th century. Until 1970, Guaita housed a prison, and today it houses the historical exposition of San Marino.

The national side of the 10 euro cents is adorned with the Basilica of San Marino, dedicated to St. Marino is the patron saint of the city and the state. His relics are kept in the main altar. The construction of the temple was carried out in the period from 1826 to 1838 under the leadership of the Bolognese architect Antonio Serra (Antonio Serra). The building is made in the neoclassical style, and the facade is created in the form of a portico with columns.

The 20 cent coin depicts St. Marino, considered the founder of San Marino. In his hands he holds three towers, symbols of the freedom of the country: Guaita, Chesta and Montale.
According to legend, St. Marino (it. San Marino diacono, ?-366) was a bricklayer and at the end of the 3rd century. settled near Monte Titano, fleeing the persecution of the Roman authorities for the Christian faith. Over time, other settlers joined Marino, forming the first Christian community. At that time, Felicita, a noble Roman woman, owned the mountain. After Marino cured her son of an illness, she donated the land to the community. Traditionally, the founding date of the community is September 3, 301.
According to the legend of St. Marino died in 366, but the community he created remained, and later received the name San Marino, in honor of its founder. Today San Marino is the oldest state in Europe.

The 50 cents depicts three fortress towers on the tops of Mount Titano, which are considered a symbol of the Republic of San Marino. They were built between the 10th and 15th centuries. The first tower is Guaita, the second is Chesta and the third is Montale. The same symbol is depicted on the state emblem and the national flag.

The obverse of the 1 euro coin features the coat of arms of San Marino. It depicts a blue coat of arms with three green peaks, on which three towers rise: Guaita, Chesta and Montale. Each fortress is crowned with an ostrich feather. On both sides, the shield is surrounded by green branches: oak on the right and laurel on the left. Under the shield is a ribbon with the inscription Libertas (Freedom),
Portico (from lat. porticus) - an open gallery, usually in front of the entrance to the building. In architecture, the portico has been used since antiquity symbolizing the centuries-old struggle with the conquerors. The shield is crowned with a crown - as a symbol of independence, not a monarchy.

The national side of the 2 euro coin is adorned with the Government Palace. It was built between 1884 and 1894 by the Roman architect Francesco Azurri on the site of the Great House of the Commune, a medieval building erected in the 14th century. Construction work was carried out according to the cultural and architectural traditions of San Marino. Local masons were involved in the construction, and the stones were mined from the caves of Mount Titano.
In the Government Palace there are administrative and government institutions: the Great and General Council, the Congress, the XII Council, the offices of the captains regents, etc.

In addition, each coin has the name of the SAN MARINO issuing country, the initials of the people who worked on the coin: the artist Frantisek Chochola (letters ch) and the engraver Ettore Lorenzo Frapiccini (born 1957) (abbreviation ELF), as well as the logo State Polygraphic Institute and Mint of Italy (letter R).
