This issue celebrates the 20th anniversary of Slovenia as an independent country.

Communist Yugoslavia was formed by Marshall Tito in 1945. He dealt with nationalist aspirations by creating a federation of six republics: Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia. But ethnic tensions where never far from the surface. Although the federation held together for 10 years after Tito's death in 1980, it fell apart rapidly after Slovenia's declaration of independence on June 25, 1991.

Edvard Rusjan (1886–1911) was a Slovene aircraft constructor and aviator. His first flight was near Campagnuzza, Italy on November 25, 1909 in Eda I, a biplane of his own design. Rusjan died in Beograd during a promotional tour through Balkan cities when his airplane's wing broke during flight and he crashed into Kalemegdan hill.

The Maribor airport and asteroid 19633 Rusjan are named after him.

Eslovénia - 3€ Presidência da União Europeia

First issued on January 3, this issue marks Slovenia's recent presidency of the European Union. It is the first Slovenian commemorative coin and also the first euro coin with a €3 denomination.

The EU Council Presidency of Member States was instituted by the Treaty establishing the European Community (the Treaty of Rome of 1957), which provides that Member States alternatively assume the function of president of the Council of Ministers for a period of six months.

In December 2004, the Council of the European Union decided that Slovenia would preside over the EU Council from January 1 to June 30, 2008. The presidency of the EU Council is an important political honor for Slovenia. In 2007, it became the first new Member State to adopt the euro, a process which proved to be fast and efficient. Slovenia will also be the first new Member State to serve as president. The presidency is confirmation that Slovenia is a country that Europe trusts and treats as a stable political institution capable of responsibly representing Europe on the international stage.

To mark Slovenia's presidency of the European Union, the Republic of Slovenia has issued collector coins with a "dynamic" EU star in the form of a windmill on the front side. The star represents Slovenia's initiative, movement, energy, volition, strength and active role during the EU presidency. Furthermore, the inscription on the coin "Facta loquuntur" (work speaks), indicates that the EU presidency will be geared to results and success. On the reverse, 27 dynamic stars represent the 27 EU Member States.
