Slovenian euro coins description

Republic of Slovenia (Sloven. Republika Slovenija)
Capital: Ljubljana
Area: 20273 km2
Population: 2.055 million (2012)
Official language: Slovenian
Currency before the introduction of the euro: Slovenian tolar = 100 stotins
Euro introduction date: January 1, 2007
Head of State: President
Form of government: parliamentary republic

The Republic of Slovenia became the first Central European state to adopt the single European currency. Like many other states that joined the European Union in 2004, Slovenia soon joined the European Financial Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM II). This happened on June 28, 2004.

However, even before joining the European Union, the Bank of Slovenia began preparations for the transition to a new currency. In particular, the development of projects for the national side of Slovenian euro coins.
The first stage of the selection process began in April 2004 with a preliminary discussion of possible themes for the new coins. Through the media, the Slovenes were given the opportunity to express their proposals. In addition, numismatists, designers and experts from other specialties were involved in the discussion. In total, 699 proposals from 132 people were submitted for consideration by a special commission of 9 people, including specialists from the Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Slovenia.
At the second stage, the expert commission invited five well-known Slovenian designers to create sketches. A special jury, consisting of respected Slovenian artists, designers, teachers and connoisseurs of the Slovenian cultural heritage, had to review and evaluate the projects submitted by the artists for the competition. The project of the designer Miljenko Licul (Miljenko Licul, 1946-2009), developed jointly with his daughter Maja Licul (Maja Licul, born in 1970) and the engraver Janez Boljka (Janez Boljka, born in 1931), was unanimously chosen. Milenko Litsul, in collaboration with other artists, was the author of the design of coins and banknotes of the former money of the young state - the Slovenian tolar.
After the approval of the project by the Government of Slovenia on July 28, 2005, it was sent for consideration and approval to the Council of Ministers of Economy and Finance of the EU countries (Ekofin). Approval for conformity of design to European legislation was received on October 5, 2005.

One of the most beautiful birds in Europe, the white stork, is depicted on the 1 euro cent coin. motive borrowed from an old Slovenian coin of 20 tolars. Today, this small coin is often used in Slovenia as a symbolic gift when a new addition to the family is expected.

The so-called Prince's stone is presented on 2 euro cents. In fact, this is an inverted base of an ancient Roman column, known for the fact that, according to tradition, in the Middle Ages, the rulers of the ancient Slavic state, Carantania, which arose at the beginning of the 7th century, were crowned on it. in Slovenia, Carinthia and Styria.
The stone itself comes from the ruins of the main city of the Roman province of Noric - Virunum. Then he lay for a long time in the Zolfeld Valley, where the coronation ceremony took place. Today it is stored in the parliament building of the Austrian city of Klagenfurt. The image of the Prince's stone was also on the Slovenian banknotes of the 1991-1992 sample.
However, such symbolism of the succession of the Carantanian and Slovenian states provoked protests from Austrian patriots. Indeed, in the Austrian federal state of Carinthia, the Prince's stone is also considered a historical symbol of the state. The local leadership, led by the governor of Carinthia, Jörg Haider, expressed a note of protest in October 2005, which was rejected by the current Slovenian foreign minister, Dimitrij Rupel.

5 euro cents is decorated with a painting by the famous Slovenian impressionist artist Ivan Grohar (Ivan Grohar, 1867-1911) "The Sower". True, on the coin it seems that the peasant is sowing the stars. It is the stars, which are elements of the flag of the European Union, that have become a symbol of the union of the old with the new.
The painting "The Sower" was painted in 1907 and depicts a peasant sowing in a plowed field on an early foggy morning. This is a 19th century metaphor describing the Slovenes as a determined nation facing an uncertain fate.
It is worth noting that the total number of stars depicted on the coin is symbolic: 12 around the circumference and 13 on the “field” symbolize the 25 states that are members of the European Union by 2007.

The 10 euro cent coin shows a model of an unrealized project by Joze Plecnik (1872-1957), according to the drawings of which in the first half of the 20th century. many architectural structures were erected in Ljubljana.
However, one of his projects remained unfulfilled. In 1947, the architect developed a project for the building of the Slovenian Parliament. The facade of the building was supposed to be 50 meters long and have a 120 meters high tower. But the idea was considered too expensive for a country that had only recently survived the war. It is this “Cathedral of Freedom” that is immortalized on the coin.

On the coin of 20 eurocents, another property of the Republic is presented - a pair of beautiful horses - Lipizzans. This breed was bred at the stud farm in Lipica in the 16th century. and is the result of 400 years of selection. She possesses not only nobility and beauty, but also a special combination of strength, courage, intelligence and temperament. The breed is considered rare - there are no more than 3 thousand purebred Lipizzans in the world. And although Lipica is a Slovenian city today, it used to be, like, 36 however, the entire territory of present-day Slovenia was located in the Austrian Empire.
On this basis, now Lipizzans are also one of the national symbols of the Republic of Austria. The image of a Lipizzan with a rider was on a 5-shilling coin of the 1969 sample. Despite the fact that Lipizzans were often mentioned in the media in connection with the placement of the Prince's Stone on Slovenian 2-euro cent coins, there are no official protests against the use of the image of horses of this breed from the Austrian side, especially since they were bred on Slovenian territory proper.

The highest point in Slovenia and the Julian Alp - Mount Triglav - adorns a coin of 50 euro cents. The height of this mountain range is 2863 m. Triglav is also depicted on the emblem and flag of Slovenia. Apparently, the name of the mountain comes from the name of the highest god of the Baltic Slavs Triglav, depicted with three heads. The image of the constellation Cancer is also engraved on the coin above the mountain range: it reminds that Slovenia gained independence on July 21, 1991 under the constellation Cancer, in which the Sun is located from July 21 to August 9. Engraved above is the title of a well-known patriotic poem by Jakob Aljaz, "O Triglav, my home."

A portrait of the Slovenian reformer Primoz Trubar (Primoz Trubar, 1508-1586), who published the first books in the Slovenian language: "Abetsedariy" ("ABC") in 1550 and "Small Catechism" in 1551, is engraved on the bimetallic 1 euro. In addition, he was engaged in the translation of church literature into Slovenian.

The bimetallic 2 euro coin has a profile portrait of the national Slovenian poet Franz Preseren (France Preseren, 1800-1849). Under the portrait is engraved the first verse of the 7th stanza of the poem "Health resort", written in 1844 by Franz Prešeren. This piece of verse, set to music by Stanko Premrl, has been the national anthem of Slovenia since 1989.

In addition, each coin has 12 stars around the main image, between them there are letters that also make up the word SLOVENIJA.
