2 euro - The Wolf - Estonian National Animal
The two-euro commemorative coin dedicated to the Estonian national animal, the wolf, will use a design by the artist Maria Meos. The Eesti Pank Supervisory Board decided that her design, named Kriimsilm270, was the best submitted. The winning design shows a howling wolf standing on a rocky outcrop. As the wolf is a forest animal, the background to the design shows the classic Estonian pine forest. The background also shows a starry night sky, as this is when the wolf is most likely to be heard. The winning designer Maria Meos is a designer working in Tallinn. She is currently studying graphic design at the Estonian Academy of Arts having earlier worked as a fashion designer.The two-euro commemorative coin dedicated to the Estonian national animal, the wolf, will enter into circulation in spring 2021.
