Estonian Euro Coins

Estonia joined the Euro zone in 2011.

Some basic facts relating to Estonia.

Normal Currency Coins.

Unfortunately only one motif was chosen for the eight coins - an outline map of Estonia. Although unexciting it is somehow quite appealing.

On closer examination one can see a few differences between the coins

i) In the cent coins the map of Estonia is sunk relative to the background whereas in the 1 Euro and 2 Euro coins the map is raised relative to the background.

ii) On the 2 Euro coin two small islands, Vaindloo and Nootamaa, are depicted. These, the most Northerly point and most Westerly point of Estonia are not depicted on the other coins.

Around the rim of the Two Euro Coin the country name "EESTI" appears twice, separated by a circle. The two "EESTI"s are inverted down with respect to one another.
