The Croatian National Bank will on 15 September 2023 release into circulation the first commemorative 2-euro coin to commemorate the introduction of the euro as the monetary unit of Croatia on 1 January 2023. The coin, designed by the sculptor Nikola Vudrag and minted by the Croatian Mint, will be issued in the amount of 250,000 pieces.
In addition to its numismatic significance, the commemorative euro coin also has the status of a circulation coin so that, as a rule, no fee is charged for its exchange. Thus, the first Croatian commemorative 2-euro coin will be available for purchase at the same value of 2 euros.
A maximum of five (5) euro coins per single transaction/person can be exchanged in the first weeks following the issuance in order to make it available to the largest possible number of Croatian citizens. Banks are also advised to enable the exchange of a maximum of five (5) euro coins per transaction/person.
