Obverse – The inner part of the coin depicts the Rebrinčevolistna Hladnikija plant.
On the left under the plant, its name ‘HLADNIKIA PASTINACIFOLIA’ is written in an arc.
Around the image in a circle is the legend ‘SLOVENIJA 2010. 200 LET. BOTANIČNI VRT. LJUBLJANA.’
The outer ring of the coin depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
Reverse – The reverse (used from 2007 onwards) was designed by Luc Luycx and displays a map of Europe, not including Iceland and cutting off, in a semi-circle, at the Bosporus, north through the middle of Ukraine and Belarus and through northern Scandinavia. Cyprus is located further west than it should be and Malta is shown disproportionally large so it appears on the map. The map has numerous indentations giving an appearance of geography rather than a flat design. Six fine lines cut across the map except where there is landmass and have a star at each end – reflecting the twelve stars on the flags of Europe. Across the map is the word EURO, and a large number 2 appears to the left hand side of the coin. The designer’s initials, LL, appear next to Cyprus. Luc Luycx designed the original coin, which was much the same except the design was only of the then 15 members in their entirety and showing border and no geographic features. The map was less detailed and the lines the stars were upon cut through where there would be landmass in eastern Europe if it were shown.

Interesting Facts – The coin commemorates the 200th anniversary of the opening of Ljubljana’s Botanical Garden, the oldest scientific and cultural institution in Slovenia.

Botanical Garden Slovenia

Established in 1810, the Ljubljana Botanical Gardens are Slovenia’s oldest cultural, scientific and educational institution operating uninterruptedly since its foundation. The Gardens contain more than 4,500 different species and subspecies. One third of them are endemic to Slovenia, while the rest originate from other parts of Europe and other continents. The Gardens, collaborating with more than 270 botanical gardens worldwide, are involved in scientific research and educational activities. They play an important role in the growing and protection of Slovenia’s endemic, endangered, vulnerable and rare species.
