Dalmatian dogs were confirmed as native, or autochthonous, to Croatia in 1994, making these commemorative coins an obvious choice for launching the Autochthonous Croatia series. The first colorized coins in Croatian history celebrate the graceful lines and distinctive look of a dog that has been a popular working companion since the 16th century and is one of today’s fastest-growing breeds.
The colorized Dalmatian dog portrait that dominates the coin’s obverse was sculpted by Nikola Vudrag, with its distinctive spots specifically designed to evoke the outlines of Croatia’s coastal islands. The backdrop is formed by a sea wave pattern and a partial map of the mainland. It includes a coat of arms, the Cyrillic inscription “1000 kuna,” and “Republika Hrvatska,” the nation’s official Croatian name.
A pair of Dalmatian dogs in sitting and standing poses dominate the reverse, along with the inscriptions “2021,” “Dalmatinski Pas” and “Canis Dalmaticus.”
