The design was inspired by the belts from Vače Situla – one of the finest artefacts of situla art. These belts are a graphical symbol for layering history that the museum keeps for future generations. The design displays layers of the museum’s history with different names through its 200-year long history. The names are displayed in belts as they would have been if written on Vače Situla. The design includes the name of the country “SLOVENIJA” and the year of issuance “2021”.
The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
