The Mint of Finland will produce a total of 194 million euro coins for Estonia. The first deliveries are scheduled for the early autumn.
Estonia chose the design for its one-euro coin in a telephone vote. The winning design has a relief map of Estonia surrounded by the 12 stars of the European Union.
The design is repeated in Estonia’s coins of all denominations, ranging from one cent to two euros.
The Mint of Finland, a state-owned company, won the contract for the Estonian currency in 2005. The mint produces the coinage of seven other euro countries, including Greece, Luxembourg, and Ireland.
