interesting facts:
This coin with face value of 25 kuna from 2013 commemorates joining Croatia to the European Union. Croatia officially started efforts for the EU membership by signing the Stabilisation and Association Agreement in 2001, which assumed a transition period for a candidate to adjust the national law to the European one. After two years Croatia applied for the membership. On June 18, 2004 the European Council granted Croatia status of the country-candidate for the European Union. In October 2005 the EU launched the accession negotiations with Croatia, which finished on June 20, 2011. On December 9, 2011 Croatia signed the treaty of accession to the EU and in the next 18 months countries-members of the EU were gradually ratifying the treaty. The ratification procedure was accomplished on June 21, 2013 and on July 1, 2013 Croatia became the 28th member of the European Union.
