The countries where the coin cards were most popular are Estonia, Germany, France, Latvia, Spain, Slovakia, Ukraine, Finland, the US and Italy, but there was interest from people in 53 countries in total.

The Bank of Estonia released two million coins into circulation on 29 November. It has been offering coin cards since last July.

The coin was designed by entrants in a competition organised by the Estonian Academy of Arts. All of them are refugees from Ukraine. The winning design by Daria Titova depicts a girl wearing a traditional Ukrainian wreath, carefully holding a small bird in her hands.
