The Presidency of the Council of the European Union is responsible for the functioning of the Council of the European Union, the upper house of the EU legislature. It rotates among the member states of the EU every six months. The presidency is not an individual, but rather the position is held by a national government. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to as the President of the European Union. The presidency's function is to chair meetings of the Council, determine its agendas, set a work programme and facilitate dialogue both at Council meetings and with other EU institutions.
The Croatian Presidency of the Council took place during the first half of 2020, taking over from Finland and passing it to Germany.

The inner part features a presentation of the official logo of the “Typographic Chessboard” to mark the Croatian Presidency of the Council of the European Union 2020, which is a typographic image made up of letters and numbers whose relative position evokes the squares of the coat of arms of the Republic of Croatia. By composition, using the acronyms “HR” and “EU” and the presidency year “2020”, it conveys the connection between Croatia and the European Union. The inscription CROATIAN PRESIDENCY OF THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION is laid out circularly within the ring. The year of release of the coin 2020 is positioned below the core, on the coin’s ring surface.
The centre features the stylised denomination numeral “25”. The outlines of the number “25” reveal an image of a marten turned to the right, with the marten’s body integrated with the denomination numeral. Positioned above the denomination numeral and the image of a marten, on the coin’s core surface, is an image of the coat of arms of the Republic of Croatia. The name of the monetary unit “KUNA” is inscribed below the numeral, within the coin’s core. A common oak branch with acorns is positioned at the left of the denomination numeral, on the coin’s ring surface. A laurel branch in bloom is positioned at the right of the denomination numeral, on the coin's ring surface. The inscription “REPUBLIKA” is laid out semi-circularly above the presentation of the coin’s core on the coin's ring surface, and the inscription “HRVATSKA” is laid out semi-circularly below the core on the coin's ring surface.
