Eesti Pank is presenting the silver and gold collector coins for the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Republic of Estonia in Narva College on Wednesday 21 February. After the presentation the collector coins will go on sale in the same location. The coins will go on sale in the Eesti Pank museum, the Omniva online shop and post offices across Estonia on 22 February.
“As a central bank we are making an important contribution to the celebration of the anniversary of the Republic of Estonia by issuing two collector coins. These coins of precious metal will support and help transmit the message of the date that is special for all of us”, said Ardo Hansson, Governor of Eesti Pank.
The gold collector coin for the centenary of the Republic has been designed by Tiiu Pirsko and Mati Veermets. Its design features the Estonian national flower, the cornflower, and the oldest Estonian geometric design, in which the symbols represent perfect happiness, development and balance. The silver coin was designed by Margus Kadarik and Toomas Niklus and has a design featuring the outline of Estonia in blue, black and white on a globe. In the sky above is a line of poetry by Kristjan Jaak Peterson “Is not the language of this land singing in the wind, or rising to heaven, looking for eternity?”. The silver and gold collector coins were minted by the Lithuanian mint. Source: Eesti Pank
