The Decision on the issue of numismatic sets of commemorative circulation kuna and lipa coins of the Republic of Croatia was published in the Official Gazette No. 87/1996.

The reverses of all denominations in the set are identical to those of regular circulation coins. The obverses are different, as each denomination features a motif related to the occasion being marked. The exception is the 5 kuna coin, with both the obverse and reverse showing motifs related to the occasion being marked.

The design of 2 and 1 kuna coins and of 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 lipa coins in the set is by the sculptor Kuzma Kovačić.

The design of the 5 kuna coin is by the sculptor Damir Mataušić.

The numismatic coin sets were minted by the Croatian Monetary Institute.
