The coin commemorates the 5th anniversary (1992-1997) of the admission of the Republic of Croatia, as an independent and recognised state, into the United Nations Organisation.
At the session of the United Nations General Assembly held on 22 May 1992, Croatia was, alongside Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, admitted to the membership of the United Nations. Croatia's UN delegation was led by the Croatian President Franjo Tuđman. After a solemn session, United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros Ghali sent delegations from the new UN members states to the main entrance of the UN headquarters, where Croatian, Slovenian and Bosnian-Herzegovinian flags were erected on the masts. Many diplomats and thousands of Croatian emigrants attended flag hoisting ceremony.
