interesting facts:
Croatia declared independence on June 25, 1991 after the results of the referendum of May 19 had been announced that 94% of the voters supported the sovereignty. There were however, several issues unsolved in order to be recognised worldwide. These included border agreements and updating the constitution so it contained rights for minorities. But Germany did not wait for Croatian updates and on December 16 it officially recognised Croatia. The other European Union countries surprised by the German decision asked Croatia to fulfill the formalities in one month. Croatia dealt with the task successfully and on January 15, 1992 it was recognised by the European Union as independent country. This coin commemorates the 10th anniversary of this event.
