Numismatic coins issued in memory of the Great Tolmin Peasant Uprising 300 years ago, and the 2013 coin set available from 25 February 2013
21. 2. 2013
The last one of this years numismatic issues will go on sale on Monday, when 25 branches of Deželna banka Slovenije put up for sale collector €3 gold and silver coins issued by the Republic of Slovenia, marking the 3rd centenary of the Great Tolmin Peasant Uprising, and the 2013 coin set issued by the Bank of Slovenia.
The €3 coin will be sold at the face value of EUR 3, the €3 proof coin at EUR 10, the silver coin at EUR 40, the gold coin at EUR 320, the 2013 coin set at EUR 25, and the 2013 proof set at EUR 45.
Coins were designed by Jernej Kejžar and bear the image of a scythe, flail and fire-tongs, representing the farming implements that the majority of peasants fought with in the revolt. The coins were minted in Slovakia.
The entire numismatic issue will be put up for sale, reduced only by advance orders collected by Deželna banka Slovenije in 2012. Customers that have made advance orders for 2013 coins but will not have purchased a golden or silver coin or the 2013 coin set this year will be deleted from the list of subscribers. To all subscribers Deželna banka Slovenije guarantees the delivery of one gold and one silver coin as well as one 2013 coin set, whereby the ordered coins have to be collected within 30 days of their release into circulation, i.e. by 26 March 2013 inclusive. After this date, i.e. from 27 March 2013, numismatic values will be made available for commercial sale.
As the proof coins and proof sets have been minted in small numbers, they will be available over the initial 30 days after release into circulation to subscribers only. There will be no additional minting of the numismatic coins issued in 2013.
