Certified as native to Croatia in 1994 by the International Cynological Federation’s survey of relevant images and documents dating back to the 16th century, the Dalmatian dog has been a well-known breed for centuries, particularly popular among coach drivers in Europe and firefighters in the New World for their ability to get along with horse teams and provide alert protection against criminals. The heyday of horses may have passed, but the popularity of the Dalmatian dog breed is stronger than ever.
A finely-rendered Dalmatian dog portrait dominates the coin’s obverse. Created by noted sculptor Nikola Vudrag, the dog’s distinctive spots are arrayed to echo the shapes of the coastal islands of Croatia. The portrait is set against a backdrop formed by a sea wave pattern and a partial map of the nation’s mainland and is accompanied by a coat of arms, the Cyrillic inscription “1000 kuna,” and “Republika Hrvatska.”
A pair of Dalmatian dogs in reclining and standing poses are featured on the reverse, which also bears the inscriptions “2021,” “Dalmatinski Pas” and “Canis Dalmaticus.”
