“Eesti Pank is this time issuing a quite special coin that is dedicated to our roots as a people. Estonians are one of the Finno-Ugric peoples*, who share similar languages and genes, and perhaps also a similar way of seeing the world. This is shown in the small but very meaningful symbols on the two-euro coin that will shortly enter circulation”, said Governor of Eesti Pank Madis Müller.

The design of the commemorative coin features the stone age cave drawings from Äänisjärv showing the sun, the elk, the hunter and the water bird. The cave drawings of Äänisjärve appear on the UNESCO list of world heritage. The coin was designed by Al Paldrok and Madis Põldsaar.

The two-euro commemorative coins with the special design are valid as legal tender throughout the euro area. They will enter circulation through banks and shops from 16 June.

A total of one million coins have been minted, of which 12,000 are BU (brilliant uncirculated) quality and are sold on a coin card. The coins were minted by the Lithuanian mint.

Governor of Eesti Pank Madis Müller will present the commemorative coin and the coin card at the VIII World Congress of the Finno-Ugric peoples in the Estonian National Museum in Tartu.

* The ancestors of the Finno-Ugric peoples came originally from the area of the Ural mountains. Three Finno-Ugric peoples have national independence, the Estonians, the Finns and the Hungarians. The European Union is also the ancient home of several other smaller tribes like the Sami and the Livonians. Some twenty Finno-Ugric nations also live in Russia.

Das war ja auch keine Kritik an der Veröffentlichung durch Dich, Rudolf, sondern an der Blindheit der Eesti Pank !
