Pictures of Slovenia's Euro Coinage

As of today, pictures of Slovenia's euro coins can be viewed at, the central web site for the implementation of the euro campaign. The campaign is run by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia and the Bank of Slovenia in collaboration with partner institutions.

Images of the national side of new euro coins are available at both the Slovenian ( and English ( web sites. The images are also available in print format.

Slovenian euro coins are being minted by the Mint of Finland. The mint was selected by the Bank of Slovenia via an international public tender in which all twenty-two mints of the EU member states were invited to participate. Five mints submitted entries and, in line with the tender's requirements, the Bank of Slovenia commissioned the Mint of Finland to produce the 234 million Slovenian euro coins.
