Every year, the Croatian National Bank issues a numismatic set of circulation coins in the denominations of 5, 2 and 1 kuna and 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 lipa. The coins in the set are identical in appearance to circulation coins in the given year.
Numismatic coin sets issued in odd years comprise coins bearing the features specified in the Decision on the denominations and basic features of kuna banknotes and kuna and lipa coins (Official Gazette 37/1994), with the minting year and the names of animals and plants inscribed in Croatian.
Numismatic coin sets issued in even years comprise coins bearing the features specified in the Decision on the basic features of kuna and lipa coins with Latin names of animals and plants on coin reverse (Official Gazette 47/1995), with the minting year and the names of animals and plants inscribed in Latin.
The coins in the numismatic sets are in brilliant uncirculated condition and sealed in rectangular 166 x 111 mm hard plastic casing.
