2€ circulation coin with a special Antarctica 200 design

This year is the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica. This important historical event is linked to Estonia because one of the first men to see Antarctica in 1820 was the Baltic German seafarer Fabian Gottlieb Benjamin von Bellingshausen, who was born in Saaremaa and who documented the discovery. To commemorate this significant historical moment, Eesti Pank is issuing on 27 January 750,000 two-euro circulation coins with a special Antarctica 200 design

Mintage: 750 000
