Officially recognized as an autochthonous breed of Croatia by the International Cynological Federation, Dalmatian dogs were popular in the centuries after their advent with coach and carriage drivers specifically: they were excellent companions for both horses and humans, and their alertness made them excellent at guarding against distraction and theft tactics employed by bandits. When they reached the New World, they became equally beloved by firefighters who at the time were using horse-drawn carriages, and became iconically identified as firehouse dogs.
The 2021 Croatia Gold Dalmatian Dog Coin celebrates this breed with a high-quality finish, shipped to you by JM Bullion fully insured against loss or damage. It arrives in gorgeous themed box packaging, with a case that also contains a Certificate of Authenticity bearing the signature of the Croatian National Bank’s governor. With just under a thousand pieces available worldwide and containing investment-grade pure gold, it is certain to be prized by both investors and collectors.
The obverse is dominated by a detailed profile portrait of a Dalmatian dog whose signature spots are designed to evoke the coastal islands of the Republic of Croatia. A representation of the mainland combined with a sea weave pattern to form the backdrop, accompanied by the Cyrillic inscription “1000 kuna,” the official state name “Republika Hrvatska,” and a Croatian coat of arms.
Attractive relief artwork of a pair of Dalmatian dogs, gracefully posed in standing and sitting positions, dominates the coin’s reverse. It’s joined by the inscriptions “2021” and the breed’s Croatian and Latin names, “Dalmatinski Pas,” and “Canis Dalmaticus.”
