First of this year’s special coins on sale on 2 March; pick up enabled for coins reserved online
Starting on 2 March Banka Slovenije will issue for sale and circulation the first of this year’s commemorative and collector coins. Offered for sale will be commemorative coins marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of architect Jože Plečnik and collector coins marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of painter Matija Jama, plus collections of coins bearing the year 2022. Quantities ordered online, a new feature we introduced this year, have been reserved and will be available for picking up at selected pick up locations up until 15 March.
This year Banka Slovenije has expanded the possibilities for accessing numismatic products, which can now be ordered in advance using the online form. All unreserved quantities of products will also be available for purchase in the usual way at the Banka Slovenije counters, at selected branches of Deželna banka Slovenije, and at Moro & Kunst.
For the first of this year’s special coins entering circulation on 2 March, the period for online purchase expired on 16 February. We received 991 orders from individuals and corporate customers, who must pick up their ordered products between 2 and 15 March at the selected point of sale. Here we should point out especially that the total number of ordered collections of 2022 euro coins in proof technique has exceeded the available quantities, so we have apportioned them in accordance with the General Terms for Ordering the 2022 Numismatic Products. These collections that are not picked up by 15 March will be released for general sale, with purchase limited to one product per person in the first seven days.
Starting on 2 March the numismatic products (with the exception of collections of 2022 euro coins in proof technique that already sold out online) will also be available for general purchase, in the usual way at the Banka Slovenije counters, at selected branches of Deželna banka Slovenije and at the company Moro & Kunst.
