interesting facts:
The entire mintage of year 1994 was struck with a spelling mistake of the latin name for the common nightingale. Instead of the correct name LUSCINIA an additional letter N appeared to read LUSCINNIA. The mistake was corrected for the 1996 issue.

On the obverses of circulation coins Croats are presenting their nature described in Croatian for odd years of issue or in Latin for even years of issue.
