    Slovenia 1 Tolar Coin

    Located in Southern Europe, SLOVENIA (Slovenija) is known for featuring various organisms and animals on its circulating coins. Slovenia has coins depicting an olm (aquatic salamander), owl, bee, birds, and fish. Part of a series lasting from 1992 to 2006, this brass 1 Tolar (En Tolar) coin of 1995 displays the Brown Trout. As written below the three fish, Salmo trutta fario is the Brown Trout's scientific binomial name. 10,000,000 1 Tolar coins were minted in 1995.

    Slovenia straddles a northern section of the Eastern Limestone Alps mountain range. The small republic country only has a 30-kilometer shoreline overlooking the Gulf of Venice, immediately south and southwest of Italy's Trieste city. Slovenia's capital is Ljubljana, which is surrounded by highlands and mountainous areas.
