The very first 2 Euro commemorative coin of Estonia is the one minted in 2012 on the occasion of 10 years of Euro banknotes and coins. It is a currency common to all European countries that differs only from the name of the state engraved above.

Specifically at the Obverse we can observe the representation of the Euro symbol placed in the center of the globe. This is precisely to reaffirm the importance of the single currency for Europe. At the top is the inscription “EESTI” while at the bottom the dates “2002 – 2012”.

All around are other elements that reinforce this very concept. We have, for example, the ship symbolising trade, the people who naturally represent European citizens and the importance of the Euro for them, the factory representing industry and, finally, the wind turbines symbolising energy.

It should be noted that the design was chosen directly by European citizens through an online competition.

On the outermost edge are as always the twelve five-pointed stars representing the European states.

While on the reverse the coin appears identical to any other 2 Euro coin with its common face.

The coin is only available in circulation.

Let’s move on to another really important 2 Euro Commemorative coin of Estonia. In particular we are talking about the coin minted in 2017 to celebrate Estonia’s road to independence.

At the Obverse we can observe a really significant drawing. It is a tree, precisely an oak tree, which represents the winding road of the State to independence. The important thing to note is that the oak has bare branches on one side and full, leafy branches on the other.

Under the bare area is engraved the date 1917 and, metaphorically, these empty branches represent the situation of the country before independence. Under the thick zone there is the inscription “EESTI” and the year “2017”. This area naturally represents the strength and rebirth of the country.

It is no coincidence that oak leaves are also present on the coat of arms of the Republic of Estonia. Finally, the inscription “MAAPÄEV” is engraved at the bottom. Distributed all around the coin are the 12 5-pointed stars representing the European countries.
