Interesting Facts –  The first stage of the selection process started in April 2004, involving preliminary discussions with numismatists, designers and experts. The general public was also invited through the mass media to participate in a public tender concerning proposals of motifs (132 tenderers proposed 699 motifs). A special expert commission (9 different individual experts and members of different institutions, including the Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Slovenia) dealt with the proposals and the process. The second stage of selection started when the Government of the Republic of Slovenia confirmed the commission’s decision that invitations would be addressed to some prominent designers for the production of designs.The commission invited five well-known Slovene designers. A special jury of reputable Slovene artists, designers, professors and connoisseurs of Slovene cultural heritage was appointed to review and assess the designs submitted for the Slovene euro coins. The commission of the Bank of Slovenia and Ministry of Finance unanimously agreed with the proposed selected designs prepared by Mr Miljenko Licul, along with Ms Maja Licul and Mr Janez Boljka. The Government of the Republic of Slovenia gave their consent and adopted the decision on 28 July 2005 to submit the selected design proposals for the national side of the Slovene euro coins to ECOFIN (Economic and Financial Committee) – Coins Sub-Committee, which acknowledged the compliance of the Slovene design proposals with European legislation on 5 October 2005.

  • Slovenia became the first country in the Euro Zone expansion area to adopt the Euro, and the first new addition since the initial changeover to the Euro in 2002.
  • Slovenia is the second member of the Eurozone to have all of their standard issue circulation coins minted in more than one location.

Interesting Facts –  The Lincoln cent coinage represented new directions the mint had begun taking. Of the most notable is that it was the first circulating coin to feature a portrait of an actual person and not that of lady liberty. This spelled the beginning of the end for lady liberty on other denominations in years to come.Being the first coin to depict a real person is not the only “first” status that the cent can claim to. The Lincoln cent was also the first to bear the term “IN GOD WE TRUST”, the first cent ever to be minted at the Denver Mint, and in WWII issue the first and only U.S. circulating coin made of steel. MS60 prices are for Brown coins and MS65 prices are for coins that are at least 90% original red. The dates were modified in 1960, 1970 and 1982, resulting in large-date and small-date varieties for those years.
