The “Dalmatian Dog” is the first series of coins “Indigenous Croatia”. In 1994, the International Canine Federation (FCI) recognized the Dalmatian dog as an indigenous Croatian breed, and the Croatian origin of the breed is backed up by pictures and records from church chronicles dating as far back as the 16th century.
The sculptor Nikola Vudrag turned the recognizable features of this breed into a conceptual design, adding some elements of the map of the Republic of Croatia. The characteristic spots of the Dalmatian are used to represent different Croatian islands, and parts of the mainland are shown in relief, with sea waves in the background.
