The Dalmatian dog breed is among the most iconic in the world, known for its graceful appearance, abundant energy and outgoing personality. Recognized in 1994 as native, or autochthonous, to the modern-day Republic of Croatia, it’s the focus of the 2021 Colorized Croatia Dalmatian Dog 1 oz Gold Coin, a limited first issue in the Autochthonous Croatia series from the Croatian Mint and the Croatian National Bank.
The issue of colorized coins is a historic first for the Croatian Mint, and the 2021 Colorized Croatia Dalmatian Dog Gold Coin’s combination of beautiful artwork and pure gold content is sure to make it a coveted item among collectors and investors alike. It comes in themed box packaging created the Design Bureau Izvorka Juric, and Provident Metals ships it fully insured with the Certificate of Authenticity signed by the governor of the Croatian National Bank.
A colorized portrait of a Dalmatian dog, created by sculptor Nikola Vudrag, features on the coin’s obverse side, with spots that echo the shapes of the Republic of Croatia’s coastal islands. The backdrop is formed by a partial map of the Croatian mainland accompanied by a sea wave pattern, a coat of arms, the Cyrillic inscription “1000 kuna,” and “Republika Hrvatska.”
Two Dalmatian dogs dominate the coin’s reverse side, shown in standing and reclining postures that vividly convey these dogs’ legendary grace. They’re accompanied by inscriptions of the breed’s name in Croatian (“Dalmatinski Pas”) and Latin (“Canis Dalmaticus”), along with an inscription for the issuing year “2021.”
The Dalmatian dog was confirmed in 1994 as a native or autochthonous breed of Croatia, verified by historical records and images as going all the way back to the 16th century. Popular since its inception as a companion dog for horses, an alert guardian and a high-speed, high-endurance working dog with plenty of personality, the Dalmatian dog quickly rose to prominence in both Europe and the New World. It remains a popular worldwide breed to this day.
