Slovenia has issued a 2018 commemorative €3 coin to commemorate the centennial of the end of World War I.
After four bloody years, the “War to end all wars” ended with the signing of three armistices: by the Ottoman Empire in October 1918, Austria-Hungary on 4 November 1918 and finally by Germany on 11 November of the same year. The war changed the idea of war up to that time, along with the geographical and political map of Europe and the world.
The First World War left an indelible mark on northwest Slovenia and on the Posočje and Karst regions. From May 1915 to October 1917 the Soča (Isonzo) Front, a 90-kilometre section along the River Soča from Rombon to the Gulf of Trieste, was the scene of one of the biggest mountain conflicts in human history.
The period at the end of the First World War was an important time for the Slovenian nation, for at that time the Slovenians broke with Austria-Hungary, and in conjunction with other south Slavic nations they pursued the creation of a sovereign state. This led to the founding of the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs, which after just 33 days merged with the Kingdom of Serbia into the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.
Engraver: Robert Žvokelj
