The Republic of Slovenia issued a commemorative coin to mark the 600th anniversary of the coronation of Barbara of Celje.
Barbara of Cilli (1392–1451), was the spouse of Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund and as such Holy Roman Empress. She was crowned Queen of Hungary in 1408, Queen of Germany in 1414 (being the last consort to be crowned in Aachen), Holy Roman Empress in 1433 and Queen of Bohemia in 1437, shortly before her husband's death. She was actively involved in politics and economy of her times, independently administering large feudal fiefdoms and taxes, and was instrumental in creating the famous royal Order of the Dragon. She served as the regent of the Hungarian kingdom in the absence of her husband. Barbara was the daughter of Herman II, Count of Celje, and Countess Anna of Schaunberg.
Depicts, with a lined pattern, the portrait of the Queen Barbara of Cilli with her sceptre. On the image are placed three typical six-pointed stars of Counts of Cilli. On the left side of the portrait is the inscription 'Slovenia' and on the right side the inscription 'Barbara of Cilli' and the years '1414-2014'. The outer ring contains the twelve stars of the European Union.
A geographical map of Western Europe spans the outer ring and inner core on the right side of the coin. The inscription 2 EURO is superimposed over the map of Europe, with the numeral “2” located in an open field representing the eastern Atlantic Ocean.
