Il semble que la signature J.J. (JOAQUIN JIMENEZ) n’apparaisse pas sur ce visuel. Il s’agit probablement d’une erreur qui sera rectifiée avant la frappe de la pièce.

150th anniversary of the birth of the painter Matija Jama


Matija Jama is a Slovenian painter who, along with Grohar, Jakopič and Sternen, is considered to be among the Slovenian impressionist painters. He first studied painting in Munich and then continued his studies there at the university. The Slovenian Central Bank had issued a tender for a €3, €30 and €100 gold coin.

The central motif of the collector coins comprises three young birch trunks. They represent the young man, artist, painter, setting out on his independent creative path. His brush strokes create the basis for a dynamic background of gentle relief, which recalls the surface of impressionist paintings, and portray the nomadic life of the painter. The artwork for the coins was designed by Matej Štanta.

The following quantities of collector coins will be available:

  • 750 gold coins (face value €100)
  • 1,250 silver coins (face value €30)
  • 50,000 bimetallic coins of ordinary BU condition in paper rolls (nominal value of €3)
  • 1,000 bimetallic coins in proof quality, packed separately in plastic capsules (nominal value of €3)


Selected project – Matej Štanta
