Issuance year - 2008, May
The 5 coins depicted in the image also result of my exchange with Marko from Slovenia. With a very original design, the coin features an effigy of Primoz Trubar in left profile to commemorate the 500th anniversary of his birth.
Primož Trubar, was a Slovene Protestant reformer, the founder and the first superintendent of the Protestant Church of the Slovene Lands, a consolidator of the Slovene language and the author of the first Slovene printed book.
Is any Finnish collector out there interested in swapping coins for some of these coins or portuguese ones?
